We've golden soil and wealth for toil?

To protect the environment, we should never buy food with useless packages wherever you go. Also, get the right amount of food and stop food wastage, especially when part of Australia is now under drought and it is our responsibility to protect our golden soil and wealth for toil.

Reduce my carbon footprint

Every single product produced and consumed in this world has an impact on the environment and every individual who uses this product is responsible for this impact as they are the consumers of it. Hence, it is very important to be aware of the carbon footprint each one of us leaves in this world whenever we switch on a light bulb or turn the ignition of our car on. Awareness of the environmental impact of such small human activities will help create a better world where we are grateful for the natural resources we have and start using them more efficiently. I have decided to undertake the following steps to reduce my carbon footprint in this world: 1. I will stop using plastic bags and instead use re-usable bags. 2. I will use public transport to travel within city limits instead of a car. 3. I will use recycled paper for writing and reduce the amount of print-outs i take. 4. I will use energy efficient CFL lamps / bulbs. 5. I will use water responsibly 6. I will try to find a sustainable solution to the problem of plastic pollution which is affecting the natural world. 7. I will try to develop renewable energy sources so that the dependence on fossil-fuel and hence, the pollution is reduced.

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:)

Uni-cycler

I've decided that instead of driving to Monash Clayton everyday, I shall ride my bike to South Yarra Station, train to Huntingdale, then ride to campus. Whilst this takes longer and is more expensive than driving, it removes more traffic from the roads (reducing congestion and the risk of road fatalities), and improves my own health and well being at the same time. Furthermore it promotes clean energy by reducing the carbon emissions from my car!

Share the solar message

I want to be able to spread the word of solar (and other renewable) sources of energy and increase my capacity and knowledge to increase the amount of people in my life and social circles that understand the value of clean energy and transitioning away from polluting fossil fuel energy suppliers.

one week vegetarian

Being a vegetarian not only improves one's health, but also have a powerful impact on the environment. Animal agriculture is one of the major contribution towards climate change today. As a matter of fact, we can reduce greenhouse emissions as well as preserve water and land by just changing our diet. And the benefit goes on to saving lives! According to research from Cornell University, if the grain fed to livestock is directly consumed by people, 800 million people can be free from hunger. Therefore, I pledge to reduce my meat consumption, starting my first step by being a vegetarian for a week from 13/8/18
