Vegtember!

It's day twenty of Vegtember, and I have decide to stop eating meat this month, and hopefully be able continue into the future as a result of the impact agriculture has had on our environment and its contribution to global warming. The way humans are currently eating is not sustainable for our planet and increasing population.

Nice Step! How do you plan to adjust your diet - I have tried to reduce my meat consumption and I actually had to learn to cook a lot better...

Eating a pescetarian diet for a couple of weeks helped me transition first, and as a meat lover it was very hard at first but having two vegetarian room mates really helped me stay on track and once you learn some vegetarian recipes you realise how much more colourful and flavoursome they are than meat based dishes!

Stop the printing!

I will stop printing so much papers (slides and tutorials), and use more .doc files instead. Lets save the environment!

I reckon this is a good step if you can achieve it. How do you find it? I still find it easier to take notes on paper sometimes even though I know it's less sustainable...

I will commit to walking to uni at least two days a week

How's your Step going? I find it's easier to want to walk if there are a few nice things to see along the way - even if it requires a detour into a park or the like.

No Plastic bags or bottles

Try as I might, I can't believe I still take plastic bottles at functions or plastic bags at shopping. Time to stop on the plastic!

When i can not finish the food in restaurant, i always take them away. And wash the containers to reuse them later.

Promote vegetarian cooking

Kofi Annan has said one of the simplest and effective ways to reduce carbon emissions and reduce our ecological footprint is by not eating red meat. In our house this is a tricky issue. I am doing my bit. My focus is expanding my repertoire of tasty vegetarian dishes ... tonight it's mushroom and spinach (from the garden) risotto :-))

The vegetarian cooking in our house is going quite well for two out of three of us (the 10 yr old is a work-in-progress). Tonight's menu is Indian vegetarian featuring home grown silverbeet.

Spread sustainability

I have a simple goal; informing as many people as possible about the impact fossil fuel sources have on our environment. I want to tell as many people as I can about the benefits of renewable energy sources.
