No more new clothes

I'm not going to buy any NEW clothes for the rest of the year. Over-consumption of clothing is a terrible problem in Australia and I've been a culprit of buying something new just because I can.

Banish soft plastics

I am ready to cut plastics out of my life, starting with soft plastics. I already recycle soft and hard plastics, but I know that not using it in the first place is a far better option. I will need to be a more conscious shopper and take the time to go to farmers markets and wholesale grocers. I'll also need to be prepared to pay a bit more for quality items that.

Stop Buying New clothes

I am going to aim to stop buying fashion clothing that I just do not need. I am terrible at self control when it comes to buying things and over consumption is incredibly wasteful. As you can see I clearly have enough to clothe me and keep me warm or cool. No more wasteful purchases! Including random stationary items and jewelery.

I will ONLY use a REUSABLE coffee cup, water bottle and shopping bag

Paperless office

I won't print papers for meetings, not use a pen and paper to take notes. Instead I'll use Google drive and Google docs to create and share documents.

Wear your ethics

I want to continue supporting ethical and local businesses that use recycled and ethically sourced materials to produce clothing.

Cook instead of eating out

Prepare ingredients in advance for cooking later on, which also means eating out lesser.

pescatarian to vegetarian

I am currently a pescatarian and would like to cut down on my fish intake to eventually be a vegetarian.

Use reusable shopping bag, water bottle (save your money, don't buy any bottle of water), , and coffee cup...

I find public transport to go to the city so much more convenient anyways!

Recycle paper bag

Instead of chucking paper in the garbage bin, I left a plastic bag underneath my table and accumulate paper in it. Only when it's full do I empty the bag in the recycle bin. Then I use the same plastic bag again! You can be lazy and still be good at recycling :)
