I love so close to my local shops that I really want to stop driving to get groceries. It’s been hard with the stage 4 restrictions, but now that things are easing I can take more time. To my shops and back is only a 3km round trip, so I plan to start doing that and not give in to the temptation of the car. It will take time to rebuild my fitness to that point.

FIGHTING ONE USE COFFEE CUPS

Coffee is a daily fixture in a majority of our lives. Especially living in Melbourne, cafes and brunch spots are an almost daily visit. The use of paper coffee cups means that there is more waste and it has detrimental effects on the environment due to the fact that it is usually unable to be recycled properly due to the plastic and liquid inside. By ensuring that the excessive reliance on paper coffee cups is dealt with, we are able to fight pollution and the excess production of CO2.

life360:Towards zero waste

This year, I pledge to make the change from energy providers that don't supply clean energy, to an energy company like Amber or Powershop, which does. I'm hoping that this will reduce my carbon footprint at least at home. Furthermore, will also be conscious of the products that I buy, and if it comes in plastic, and there is an alternative, I will say no. The redcycle program is something I am already a part of, and I want to spread the word and make sure everyone is aware of it, and that they too can make a difference just by bringing in those plastics back to Coles or Woolies. I also have already pledged to make the change to bar shampoos instead of bottles, to reduce the plastic on that front. Lastly, I want to support more businesses which help the environment, where they plant trees, or remove plastic for each product sold.

I pledge to discover and share one at least one new exciting article/fact/news piece a week that highlights a particular sustainability goal. There's so much happening in the world both good and bad and I want to focus on the good. New innovations, initiatives or government action which brings the world one step closer to achieving the SDG’s are meant to be shared. Already participating in many small actions which help reduce waste and electricity I wanted to do something different as my ‘one step.’ I am inspired by what I read, watch and hear and want to do the same for others. Good actions need more recognition! That’s why I want to be a voice that recognises and celebrates progress.

Using less energy

Instead of using the dryer after washing my clothes, I can use my clothes horse to let the clothes air dry. By having an indoor clothes horse, I do not need to worry if it rains as my clothes will be okay :) For the next 2 weeks, I don't plan on using the dryer at all.

'FRIDGE SURPRISE' MEALS

I will use up all the food in my fridge and pantry before buying more, instead of compulsively ordering uber eats or getting more groceries unnecessarily. This will lead to a reduction in my carbon footprint and overall energy consumption. To aid this, I will do a weekly shop at the markets on Sundays, where I can stock up for the week via a local and sustainable means.

ParkCar Chill

Me and my teammates are currently creating an app helping drivers book and secure the on-street parking spot in advance and settle the payment online. Not only ParkCar Chill helps driver decrease money loss by setting the parking fine alert system, but also contribute to a smarter city by potentially lowering the traffic jam and pollution. And finally, we can help government to save more human cost by hiring less ticket officer.

FOCUSSING ON CLEAN ENERGY

Using more efficient means of energy to reduce carbon emission and other harmful greenhouse gases. I aim to move away from using fossil fuels such as petrol in cars or gas for electricity. I will ride my bike to uni and work to avoid using my car, as well as, eat more healthy plant based raw foods that require minimal cooking, electricity and resources to grow. Additionally, be more conscious of energy use including turning off unnecessary lights and power points, waking up with the sun to be more productive during natural light hours and being more organised and efficient with use. I want to half the amount of petrol I use weekly, and half the home electricity bill. We must all be aware of our ecological footprint and the way we live our lives as it significantly impacts the environment around us. It's making small changes like this that are not only beneficial for the environment, but also for our own bodies and mental health.
