GOODBYE FASHION WASTE

After watching War on waste - Fashion waste, I've stopped buying new unnecessary clothes (despite being a big shoppaholic) and start DIY new clothes from the old ones. I also donated my unwanted clothes to Salvos.

no more plastic waste

The world produces more than 300 million tons of plastic each year. 50% of this plastic is only used once! Plastic waste is affecting our lands, waterways, oceans and especially marine animals. I am taking ONE STEP to help make change and raise awareness about easy solutions to reduce plastic footprints. I will do this by not using any type of one-use plastic items such as shopping bags, water bottles, and containers.

Reduce food wastage

I will minimize the unnecessary wastage of food by ordering smaller portions when eating out and also making sure to cook as much of the ingredients I buy as possible. You can also reduce the amount of meat in your diet by eating things like this vegetarian lasagna from Monash Wholefoods!

Shift in Mindset

1. Continue to inspire others to live a more environmentally conscious and sustainable lifestyle, and ultimately support leaders at the political level who invest in a sustainable future. I will do this through my start-up @mothernaturesmilk (Instagram) and website www.mothernaturesmilk.com I am attempting to make sustainability and conservation cool, by living a fun, outdoor orientated lifestyle filled with adventure whilst minimising my footprint and maximising sustainability practises. 2. Make a conscious effort to reduce energy consumption on a daily basis, and switch to an energy provider who is highly supportive of renewable, clean energy. 3. Buy only sustainable and ethical products e.g. support companies who are by-catch friendly, apply sustainable farming practises and those who are against wide scale logging.

Ethical consumption

Choose sustainably produced garments. Purchase organic, fair trade cotton. Don't purchase cheap garments which exploit sweatshops in developing countries. Consider intragenerational equity.

Planned OBSOLESCENCE

Stop purchasing shoes, belts, wallets every year. Opt for quality over quantity. Choose shoes that will last me a decade rather than a year. Take care and maintain quality of possessions. Get shoes re-soled rather than purchasing new shoes. Reduce waste and fight planned obsolescence.

Go vegan

It has been a couple of weeks since I stopped eating meat. It is much easier than I anticipated. Not only do I feel great, I save money and I am getting in shape. I will now attempt to stop eating animal products and eventually go vegan. #noanimalproducts

Revolutionising our rubbish

I will attempt to minimise the waste to landfill that our household (as a whole) produces, given that greenhouse gases produced from landfill are a major contributor to global warming, and use diverted organic waste to reduce my own personal demand for fresh produce by using the newly-created compost to help grow my own vegetables!

Do you really need to print?

Universities as educational insitutions produce a lot of paper waste; but do they have to? Digitization of documents have significantly improved the user-experience of reading academic documents through electronic devices. I pledge to reduce printing of documents, hence reducing consumption of papers unncessarily.
