The are too kinds of environmentalism: work that is shouty and preachy or work that illustrates an environmental process but does not preach.
Examples:
Milkproject by Polak/ Auzina
Helsinki Power Station by hehe, visualizing the energy consumption on a smokestack in Helsinki.
the lake by Julie Freeman, visualization of freshwater fish.
