vego for life

Last year in the Take One Step Program, I committed to Vegtember, a month of being vegetarian, and since then I decided to only eat fish for a while, but learnt about how depleted our oceans have become so since the start of this year I have committed to not eating meat! It is still a challenge for me who loves meat and seafood, yet the thought of eating it anymore only makes me think of the huge impact the meat industry has on the land, oceans and climate which is much more important than 5 minutes of satisfaction for myself!

PTV Is amazing!

I have become so conscious of the environmental impacts of all of my actions, growing up in the country I am so used to driving my car everywhere but and this year I have decided to sell my little car, I haven't used it for the last 3 months and it is a VW which are notoriously bad for the environment! PTV is now my new best friend and I have been able to get everywhere, although life may take some more planning, the small effort it takes for me will be better for the planet

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

Take public Transport to UNi

I am going to continue taking the train and bus to get to university. Not only can I relax on the commute, but taking public transport also contributes to the reducing emissions. Plus, you can catch up with your friends on the way!

Let the air be your dryer

Whether inside or out, reduce your electricity and energy consumption by not using a dryer to dry your clothes. So many people I know still use dryers...we don't need them. Every little step counts.

Taking an even bigger step!

I have been accepted into the 40K Globe foundation for a summer internship working in rural India! I am so excited I can get out there and help make a positive change in the energy and water sectors of such a great social business, creating clean renewable energy access to those in India that don't have power and helping make clean water more accessable. I am very excited and nervous for the culture shock I know I will get, but hopefully it will only push me to continue in working towards creating a more positive and sustainable world!

It's time for us to eating natural and original now. I am actually a semi vegetarian for a long time and now I have to set rules to myself make this be a lifestyle instead of feeling leisure about this.The only reasons of Eating meat is the vegetables and fruit was not enough when back to the cavemen generation.SO,START!
