INFORM ON SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES

I believe at the basis of our world's problems stands the consumeristic nature of the current society. I am going to commit to become an active informer of this problem and a promoter of sustainable practices in Melbourne, with the intention of educating people about sustainability alternatives to every day actions. The goal is to post tips on the already launched Instagram page ActivelyZero.

Nice work with your Instagram page! We too at mothernaturesmilk incorporate similar concepts. Keep up the good work :)

Cutting out FOOD PACKAGING

I generally only purchase a coffee at university if I have my Keep Cup because I hate the unnecessary waste generated by the disposable coffee cup. However, I have found it difficult to remove soft plastics (e.g. gladwrap, gladbags) when bringing food to university. I am going to make an effort to cut out disposable plastic and unnecessary packaging from my daily food choices, which will require a bit more forward planning (e.g. ensuring I have reusable containers and carry around reusable cutlery). I will also try to purchase food from the supermarket that involves less wasteful packaging.

12 litres shower

I discovered with my little son (15 months old) that we just need 12 litres of water, one bucket and a small toy "duck" to create a wonderful moment of our shower time. At the end we are clean, we'll save a lot of water at year!!!

waste reduction

Use reusable water bottles, keep cups and tote bags. Plastic will take thousands of years to degreade which will harm marine and aquatic life.

personal carbon emissions

Purchase a bike which I can ride to uni and work. I will attempt to reduce or completely eliminate the need for driving a fossil fuel based vehicle.

Soft Plastic Recycling

I have set up a soft plastic recycling bin in my house. I have informed the rest of my household about it and explained the importance of soft plastic recycling so that our soft plastics are not ending up in landfill. Each time the bin becomes full, a member of my household will take to our local Redcycle (http://www.redcycle.net.au/) bin to be recycled into products, such as bollards, decking, and furniture, as manufactured by Replas (http://www.replas.com.au/). We will be doing this on an ongoing basis into the future.

CREATE & CONSUME responsibly

I'll introduce my workplace to sustainable practices and transform it into a Responsible Cafe. We will encourage the use of reusable coffee cups among our customers and start composting our coffee grounds. This will convey our commitment towards conscious consumerism.

Keep cup

I want to continue to bring my keep cup each day to uni to avoid having to purchase unsustainable coffee cups that cannot even be recycled. By bringing my keep cup, it also encourages me to purchase less hot drinks as I can instead make my own cups of tea using tea bags I bring from home and the hot water service provided at uni.
