I agree with screwtape - I'm not sure that I'm clear on your question. But hey, that's never stopped me from attempting an answer so here ya go:
An example of how I apply my moral stance to every day issues: as much as possible and within my means, I attempt to limit my use of single-use plastic. One way I manage this is by making many of my household cleaning supplies. This has an added bonus of avoiding the smell of chemicals in commercial products (certain chemical scents give me a headache), but that's a bonus, not a driver. I try to put more attention on reduce in the first place, reuse whenever practical, as opposed to recycling as my default.
Another one: I found out a few months ago that Jockey (the undie company) is a big supporter of the Koch brothers. So now I buy my bras and undies from Hanes.
And another: many years ago, I made the decision to not spend my shopping dollars at Walmart because I strongly object to their business practices. I do not push my decision on anyone else, and do not make an issue of it if others choose to shop there. I also don't kid myself into thinking that my puny expenditures make any difference whatsoever, but my conscience insists that I continue refusing to support them.That one is sometimes hard for me - the workers and the suppliers are actually more likely harmed by my decision than Walmart is - but I stand by my choice because it's the one I can live with ethically in consideration of my interpretation of the bigger picture. New information could change my mind.
Is this what you are looking for? My behavior in an ethical sense is driven by my awareness that there may be an ethical matter to consider. If I don't realize, for whatever the reason, that there may be an ethical or moral aspect to consider, then it's irrelevant - I can't act on that which I don't know anything about. If I am aware of it, I apply what I know against my personal standards (extremely broad strokes could be defined as "do as little harm as possible") and decide accordingly. Limiting harm is challenging, and often requires that I make trade-offs.
Honestly it's no different that what you do, other than the perceived origin of the standard we use to measure our personal behavior against our personal ethics. You see God where I see psychology, sociology and social norms/cultural influence. I've been heavily influenced by science, which pushes me to respect the limits of our current resources and avoid waste as much as possible.
