Reduce my meat and dairy intake.

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.

Communicate sustainability

I will be volunteering at CERES as a science communicator, writing articles to educate the community on green technology and help lower the carbon footprint

Bathe using a bucket

Using a shower doesn't make us realise how much water we're actually using, so I'd use a bucket and also add some Neem Oil to it, avoiding common diseases and pains with this superhero antiseptic.

I will aim to go PLASTIC FREE! I will do this in a number of ways. Firstly, I will aim to bring lunch from home instead of buying food at uni. This way I can ensure that I am using re-usable containers, cutlery and keep cups instead of using the standard take-away options. I will also aim to educate my family and convince them to do the same! In addition, I will ensure that when shopping is being done, cloth bags are always brought - they must become a staple!

turning off power points

We are all guilty of doing this. A great way to save energy (and money!) is to turn off switches when they are not being used around home, work and university

Ride Green

I will ride my bicycle more than driving my car as my car emits harmful toxins into the air. It will also be a good influence for my friends and family!

No more PALM OIL products

Sustainability and social justice play a huge role in my life from day to day. With some thought, I have identified a giant gap. I have been eating a vegan diet for approximately 8 years, but in order to go completely cruelty free and ethical, it's time for me to get serious about comprehensively responsible consumption. I pledge to avoid the purchase of any products containing palm oil (linked to deforestation, climate change, habitat degradation, animal abuse and indigenous rights abuses). I intend to make this a permanent change. Looking forward to the adjustment!

Change daily habit

I will eat outside less and bring my own food with reusable box, or if I need to buy, I will choose not to use the plastic packages and bring my own cutleries I will be more selective with my consumption when I do groceries, looking for sustainability resource label and buy local product as well as use reusable bag

Naked bulk

As I have recently moved to Melbourne from Sydney, and have moved into a new home, I am keen to set myself up a little more sustainably. I am more and more conscious of avoiding single use plastics, but when trying to stock up my new kitchen I was made aware of all the unnecessary packaging for many of the items I had bought. After chatting with my new roommate I came up with a list of local stores I will visit for future grocery shopping where I can bring my own container or jar to refill. I buy a lot of fruit and veg, so I will look for a good local farmers market for these items, and for pantry goods like pasta, cereals, legumes etc I would like to go to bulk buy stores where I can take my own containers and reduce unnecessary waste from packaging.
