I will build and commit to using a compost pile at home in order to reduce food waste entering landfill and harming the environment. As a benefit, I'll be able to get great breakdown products out of the compost for use on the garden.
-Introducing a culture and curriculum that prepares students with the innovative thinking and system's thinking necessary for sustainability literacy -Sustainability workshops run once or twice a semester via the 'My.Monash' booking system -Introducing an optional Moodle unit that offers information about sustainable development. (Similar concept to the 'Leap into Leadership' Program on Moodle) -
Simply ride my bike as much as I can whenever it's feasible. Instead of driving to soccer, the train station and friend's houses I'll ride my bike. The end goal will be to implement a bike riding scheme at Monash Clayton to get people to ride bikes to and from Huntingdale station instead of catching the bus.
I am sometimes guilty of sleeping in too much, and i will often miss my bus and have to take the car to the station. Occasionaly i will even have to drive all the way to university, which is a waste of money, time (that could be spent studying) and of course- a big waste of fuel. I will aim to reduce this by getting up early enough to catch my first bus! And checking up on the PTV to see what time it comes.
I'm always using reusable bottles and fill it up everyday. It's not that hard once you get used to it. Eventually you will save money and drink more water.
Luckily, we live in a country that water is not a problem. However, that doesn't mean that we must not reduce our water consumption. I found that I can bath perfectly with only 2 buckets of water. I know it is really difficult to change into such behaviour but try to do it at least once per week to save water.
I'm hoping to reduce my carbon footprint from the resources used in producing plastic and the amount of waste ending in landfill & natural habitats. I will do this by attempting to be more conscientious of the products i'm purchasing and their packaging. I also hope to increase the awareness of the Redcycle program and try and persuade 5 of my friends to use reusable coffee cups. Recently I have been involved with my local State member of Parliament in order to discuss a state wide ban of single use plastics from stores. This involved copious research into the topic. To track my Sustainable Development Goal, I'll record each item of non-reusable plastic that I purchase or use for 3 months and make a list of the people I can get to commit to reusable cups.
