eco-BAG IT THE RIGHT WAY

I will bring reusable bags and containers when shopping, travelling or food to university. This will set a strong example for my family and reduce the unfortunate consequences plastic bags being recycled such as the killing of animals in the ocean. In addition, containers will allow me to contribute to society in reducing waste.

Meat free monday

Make a conscious effort to not eat meat on Monday for a month. This will also involve encouraging my family to also take this step to reduce our carbon footprint and improve our health.

Check out ThugKitchen.com for some vegan twists on classic favourites, that might make the transition easier! I cooked some of these for some meat-lovers in my life and they really enjoyed them! The meatless meatballs are amazing!

NOT BUYING CLOTHES FOR 1 YEAR

Along with my ACTIVELY ZERO project (Instagram: ActivelyZero), I started this personal challenge when the War on Waste documentary went live. I believe stopping for one year to buy clothes is going to kill any consumeristic addiction that I (as a responsible consumer as I always considered myself) still have imbedded in me. With clothes goes anything that I don't think is necessary. I am almost at month 3 and I already find myself looking at windows and smiling with a sense of "I am over it". =)

INFORM ON SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES

I believe at the basis of our world's problems stands the consumeristic nature of the current society. I am going to commit to become an active informer of this problem and a promoter of sustainable practices in Melbourne, with the intention of educating people about sustainability alternatives to every day actions. The goal is to post tips on the already launched Instagram page ActivelyZero.

Cut out plastic bags

The detrimental impacts plastic bags have on our environment is being seen globally, in our oceans and compiles in our land fill. My first step is to eradicate plastic bags from my daily life and only use reusable green bags when shopping whilst encouraging friends and family to do the same.

Pick Rubbish up

My first step is to pick up rubbish wherever I can see and put them into the garbage. I can do it everyday and everywhere. I will drop waste water bottle and waste paper into the dustbin after class. When I go to Attractions, I will bring a bag to collect waste to make due contributions to our environment. It will be even better if people around me can be influenced to join this action together.

waste reduction

Use reusable water bottles, keep cups and tote bags. Plastic will take thousands of years to degreade which will harm marine and aquatic life.

personal carbon emissions

Purchase a bike which I can ride to uni and work. I will attempt to reduce or completely eliminate the need for driving a fossil fuel based vehicle.

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.
