For mindful consumption of resources I will list out the ingredients or parts of different things I use in daily life. Further I will introspect to know the orIgin or roots of different materials and their impact on the environment during manufacturing. For sustainable use of resources I will be mindful in choosing green products and will eliminate materials having harmful effect.

I will stop buying and eating meat and meat based products, except where such food would otherwise go to waste.

Reduce, towards 0, how much meat I eat and other products that have a large effect on climate change and global warming.

I will make a conscious effort to buy more local produce and support businesses that have pledged to be more sustainable. This means I will have to be more aware of what I'm consuming and the origins of what I purchase. My money is my vote and I have to make it count!

Forget your reusable cup? It's not the end of the world! Remember that most cafes offer mugs. Love the Gloria Jeans near my house

Completely stop using single use plastic bags so less plastic ends up in oceans and in natural reserves

To reduce the amount of plastic that I consume, I will always remember to bring a reusable coffee cup and drink bottle along with me when going out. I will also bring along reusable bags when shopping, and reusable produce bags for loose fruits and vegetables (and opt for the loose as opposed to pre-packaged produce). I will also try to purchase from bulk food stores whenever possible for other items such as flour, nuts, etc, to avoid plastic packaging.

Try to walk to everywhere within 5 km instead of driving. The development of science and technology has gradually affected people's physical activities. Also, the increase of vehicles has caused air pollution.

I will always use the stairs instead of the elevator when I am going somewhere that is on floors 1-10 of a building.

I will eat a plant based diet 5 days a week, with no meat, fish or diary. The aim of this 'take one step' is to reduce demand for mass animal farming which emits large amount of greenhouse gases and reduces biodiversity. This challenge involves 5 days a week, not 7, to make it a sustainable and achievable adaption from my current lifestyle.

In order to reduce my plastic waste I replaced glad wraps with wax paper! Some companies use bees wax but I prefer not to harm the bees and got these plant based ones which are made with plant waxes and jojoba oil. They come in different sizes and you can get them to wrap around things by heating it up with the palm of your hands! I love them

I want to reduce my plastic waste by half. I think for this to work I need to first find the 'low hanging fruit'. Some items such a hummus, frozen berries and tofu which might be available somewhere in non-plastic containers would be simply outside my budget. Supplying my own containers for take away, remembering to bring my bags for grocery shopping, purchasing reasonably priced options packaged in class and tin are more realistic targets.

I will commit to considering the true environmental and social costs of consumption choices. This may be through simple steps, such as always remembering a reusable coffee cup, bag or drink bottle; to moving towards packaging free products; supporting social businesses, and educating myself on supply chains and businesses values and impact.
