A Coffee Cup To Remember

Establish a voluntary accreditation where coffee shops at Monash University sign up to be apart of Monash Sustainable Coffee Cup Movement. Whereby 10c of each purchased coffee goes towards research and sourcing of a coffee cup that is biodegradable and recyclable.

The REDcycle Program

My first step starting June was joining the REDcycle Program from Coles which i learnt through WOM. At my house, we are 4 students and somehow accumulate around 20 plastic bags a week (4personx5bags). This over a long period adds up to a lot of waste which Coles can collect and recycle it! Massive competitive advantage they have obtained! My contribution and new habit of bringing 80 plastic bags a month back to Coles, can also have impact on others as many have asked me why i was carrying such big bags filled with other bags giving me an responsibility of also increasing awareness.

Kill the textbooks

Stopping using the paper packs of textbooks. Instead choosing to use the cheaper, lighter and undamaged e-textbook during the study and daily life.

It is important to me that I stop supporting unethical industries (such as fossil fuels and tobacco) with my superannuation and bank accounts. I will research my best options, divest my funds, and then make sure to discuss my decisions with my friends and family to encourage them to make the switch too.

start a scholarship fund

With being privileged to have access to so many resources, I want to connect with people, and start a scholarship fund which enables students to get higher education or even start a sustainable movement within their home country. I hope I can act as the link and make a difference even in one person's life.

Support organic farmers

I buy organic whenever I can because organic food is better for the environment in terms of it being produced with no pesticides.

Take public Transport to UNi

I am going to continue taking the train and bus to get to university. Not only can I relax on the commute, but taking public transport also contributes to the reducing emissions. Plus, you can catch up with your friends on the way!

Australian Ethical are worth looking at. Most superfunds offer sustainability focused portfolios these days. Good luck.

Promoting recycling

I aim to create a seperate recycling bin in my bedroom to recycle all my notes, printed journal articles and loose papers that I use while studying that I normally put in the bin.
