Growing my own food

I just spent the whole weekend planting a veggie patch in my back garden so I can grow fresh, organic food for myself and my family. This meets several goals all at once. I will be getting more exercise and eating more healthy, vegetarian food. Growing your own food is also better for the environment, as there is no pollution from transport, pesticides or fertilizers, and the plants act as a carbon sink. My next step is to plant some native plants to help improve biodiversity in my area.

SUSTAINABLE CONSUMPTION

I purchase sustainable and ethically sourced products wherever I can! This product is my favourite! I also minimise my use of plastic bags and ensure my products don't contain any microplastics that can be consumed by marine life! My one step would be to reduce all use of plastic bags and other plastics!

I pledge to only purchase second hand clothing and footwear for the next 6 months, as well as to increase the frequency with which I borrow/rent items as opposed to buying them.

eco-BAG IT THE RIGHT WAY

I will bring reusable bags and containers when shopping, travelling or food to university. This will set a strong example for my family and reduce the unfortunate consequences plastic bags being recycled such as the killing of animals in the ocean. In addition, containers will allow me to contribute to society in reducing waste.

Meat free monday

Make a conscious effort to not eat meat on Monday for a month. This will also involve encouraging my family to also take this step to reduce our carbon footprint and improve our health.

Check out ThugKitchen.com for some vegan twists on classic favourites, that might make the transition easier! I cooked some of these for some meat-lovers in my life and they really enjoyed them! The meatless meatballs are amazing!

NOT BUYING CLOTHES FOR 1 YEAR

Along with my ACTIVELY ZERO project (Instagram: ActivelyZero), I started this personal challenge when the War on Waste documentary went live. I believe stopping for one year to buy clothes is going to kill any consumeristic addiction that I (as a responsible consumer as I always considered myself) still have imbedded in me. With clothes goes anything that I don't think is necessary. I am almost at month 3 and I already find myself looking at windows and smiling with a sense of "I am over it". =)
