doing better

I will begin to walk/jog to the train station rather than taking the bus as the travel times are not too different.

DIVEST FROM UNETHICAL INDUSTRIES

It is important to me that I stop supporting unethical industries (such as fossil fuels and tobacco) with my superannuation and bank accounts. I will research my best options, divest my funds, and then make sure to discuss my decisions with my friends and family to encourage them to make the switch too.

PTV Is amazing!

I have become so conscious of the environmental impacts of all of my actions, growing up in the country I am so used to driving my car everywhere but and this year I have decided to sell my little car, I haven't used it for the last 3 months and it is a VW which are notoriously bad for the environment! PTV is now my new best friend and I have been able to get everywhere, although life may take some more planning, the small effort it takes for me will be better for the planet

The measure used here to determinewhich travel destination (ie local vs overseas) is more environmentally friendly, is the total amount of carbon footprint. I feel the answer depends on how far you travel, If one were to take single flight overseas vs someone using the car but covering the same distance, the carbon footprint of local travel would be higher.

Let the air be your dryer

Whether inside or out, reduce your electricity and energy consumption by not using a dryer to dry your clothes. So many people I know still use dryers...we don't need them. Every little step counts.

Taking an even bigger step!

I have been accepted into the 40K Globe foundation for a summer internship working in rural India! I am so excited I can get out there and help make a positive change in the energy and water sectors of such a great social business, creating clean renewable energy access to those in India that don't have power and helping make clean water more accessable. I am very excited and nervous for the culture shock I know I will get, but hopefully it will only push me to continue in working towards creating a more positive and sustainable world!

Australian Ethical are worth looking at. Most superfunds offer sustainability focused portfolios these days. Good luck.

Grow your own

I am going to commit to growing more veggies on my balcony, not only is it a money saver but I'm practising responsible consumption and production :)
