GENDER EQUALITY IN STEM

By starting an organisation with other uni students called Sisters in Science, I am going to show young girls that they are just as capable of doing science as boys. By running incursions in schools, hopefully young girls will realise their potential and follow careers in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) fields.

fashion more slowly

I pledge to stop buying from fast fashion retailers. The textile/fashion industry is the second largest polluting industry in the world. I pledge to buy second hand and when buying new, to always think carefully about my purchases (if I don't think I will wear it more than 30 times, I won't be buying it!)

Use Jute Bags for shopping

I wanted the most eco friendly bags to use for shopping, as the green supermarket bags are still a type of plastic. Cotton, and even organic cotton, still use a lot of resources ( water and chemcials for nonorganic) to produce. Jute however requires much less water, grows quickly and requires minimal to no fertiliser. Although I was aware of the carbon miles the bags would travel, I chose to buy some made by a Bangladeshi Womens Co-op and the bags are fantastic. Best still, I can home compost them when they are no longer useable:)

Vegan

For the next three months, I pledge to exclusively eat plant-based foods to reduce my carbon footprint. Animal agriculture is the second leading cause of habitat loss and a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. This is having large-scale and unpredictable consequences for the environment and many non-human animals! In Australia, hooved animals are drastically reducing the quality of our soils, which under predicted climate scenarios will drastically decrease crop yield and productivity! Now is the time to act, and voting with our forks is a powerful act indeed!

PLASTIC FREE BATHROOM

Growing up with four sisters, our bathroom was a plastic breeding ground! This month, I pledge to transform my bathroom into a plastic-free santuary using the six R's principle. REDUCE: I will aim to reduce my make-up use and only select vegan friendly options with degradable packaging! Tumeric root and beetroot also provide fun, natural make-up alternatives! Also, I will only buy recycled toilet paper and soap that comes without plastic packaging (who gives a crap is a great brand) REUSE: Menstrual cups are an easy, hygeinic alternative to tampons and pads! REPURPOSE: This month, I will repurpose the multitude of bi-carb soda boxes, coconut oil, essential lemongrass oil and jars at my mothers, to make my own toothpaste and deodarant. RECYCLE: I will refill my empty shampoo, conditioner and cleaning product bottles at my local wholefoods with high quality environmentally friendly products! REPLACE: I will swap my toothbrush, floss, and beloved q-tips for compostable bamboo alternatives. REMOVE: This month, I will ditch the razor and embrace my natural, womanly state! What a wonderful way to celebrate femininity and challenge the social structures that try to divide and taint the way we view our whole selves. Plastic pollution is a growing consequence of a post-modern world, embedded in habitual consumption. Individual action is the first step towards a better world, where people and nature are not at odds, but in a self-sustaining cycle that maintains quality over quantity!

MOO Hungry

I,ll try not to let waste food dump in the fields so as to reduce green house gas emission. Dumping waste food is the biggest concern of now as approximately 20% of food bought for consumption is wasted i.e., 1 bag of grocery out of 5 bags purchased. Dumped waste food produces methane and other harmful gases which effects the environment. Also every 1 person out of 100 in Australia are living homeless and don't have money to buy food for three times a day. Raising this issue to globalization may help save us, our family, our friends, our loved ones and most of all important our global home OUR EARTH!

responsible consumption

One of the biggest challenges we face today is consumerism and the consequences that follow: waste, inefficient use of resources, human rights abuse in the supply chain and the list goes on. Purchasing this jacket represents the start of living a minimalistic life. I'm aiming to purchase quality clothing that will last me for longer periods and buy brands that conduct their business in an ethical manner as oppose to mindlessly buying cheaper clothing with no consideration for their makers. This step aims to support corporations that conduct their business with the consideration of the communities and people.
