Smart shareholder

I have become a shareholder recently and am beginning to diversify my portfolio - however, I want to be investing in companies that have policy in place for a better future. As I continue to invest I will be a shareholder of ethical and sustainable companies that have a better future regarding any SDGs in focus. Vote with your wallet! photo credit: Emma Tkalcevic

NO FAST FASHION 2021

Australia is the second largest consumer of new textiles after the US and 85% of this ends up at the tip every year. Not only is the fashion industry incredibly wasteful, it is very frequently unethical. Workers are underpaid and commonly children. Working usually 7 days a week, the average day in most manufactory countries is 14-16 hours. On top of that, the working conditions are unsafe leading to over 1000 deaths in the last 10 years. While the perils of fast-fashion are known to most people, the industry still thrives. This upcoming year, i pledge to purchase from zero fast fashion stores. I will buy second-hand and if I must purchase new clothes they will be from transparent, ethical and sustainable brands. My aim with this step is to slow down my wardrobe and fight for the planet and garment workers.

internationalist activism

Recognising and reflecting upon an individual's place within global power structures is important if we're going to actually get something done. In order to achieve something positive with one's systemic privilege, the first step is to educate yourself on international environmental issues and connect with those more familiar with them, moving later to gather resources and tools to mobilise in lock-step with communities disadvantaged by uneven development under global industrial capitalism.

Engage in other knowledges

Indigenous knowledges continue to be marginalised in the broader Australian community. In a time of grave ecological crisis with threatening mega wildfires and other environmental disasters, we should be engaging in knowledges that have been an integral part of the Australian landscape for at least 65,000 years. I pledge to increase my engagement with local Indigenous knowledges by attending local Indigenous led workshops and getting to know Indigenous plant and animal species that are native to my local area.
