Conscious consumer

Replace all my self care products (cosmetics, skin care, hair care etc.) with those made by sustainable and ethical brands. This includes locally made, organic and natural products as well as supporting brands that are cruelty free and environmentally focused. This will also involve me educating myself on what ingredients are in the products I use and doing a lot of research into brands before I buy from them.

Bottled Water?

My pledge is to stop drinking bottled water and advertise the availability and affordability of free water to students around campus. 31 billion bottles find their way into landfill and our oceans each year, and we choose to pay for that to happen.

zero waste household

In Australia over 7 million tonnes of household waste is dumped into landfill each year. I am encouraging my household to commit to lowering their waste output. This year I have started a soft plastic recycling bin, which is taken to a redcycle bin ( each shopping trip. This soft plastic will then be recycled into useful things, such as park benches. I have also set up a compost heap in the backyard to make nutritious soil for our garden and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from food-waste dumped in landfill. My household is also committed to sourcing our furniture from sustainable sources, such as gumtree, to reduce the amount of furniture waste in landfill.

minimilist fashion challenge

This past month I have been working really hard to reduce clothing wastage. I have sorted through my clothes and donated all those that are in good condition and which I do not wear. After reading about different minimalism challenges I have challenged myself to limit my wardrobe to 30 items and not purchase any new clothing for the next 3 months! The rest of my clothes/shoes are in storage so I can change things up when the seasons change.

After watching War on waste - Fashion waste, I've stopped buying new unnecessary clothes (despite being a big shoppaholic) and start DIY new clothes from the old ones. I also donated my unwanted clothes to Salvos.

no more plastic waste

The world produces more than 300 million tons of plastic each year. 50% of this plastic is only used once! Plastic waste is affecting our lands, waterways, oceans and especially marine animals. I am taking ONE STEP to help make change and raise awareness about easy solutions to reduce plastic footprints. I will do this by not using any type of one-use plastic items such as shopping bags, water bottles, and containers.

Reduce food wastage

I will minimize the unnecessary wastage of food by ordering smaller portions when eating out and also making sure to cook as much of the ingredients I buy as possible. You can also reduce the amount of meat in your diet by eating things like this vegetarian lasagna from Monash Wholefoods!

Shift in Mindset

1. Continue to inspire others to live a more environmentally conscious and sustainable lifestyle, and ultimately support leaders at the political level who invest in a sustainable future. I will do this through my start-up @mothernaturesmilk (Instagram) and website I am attempting to make sustainability and conservation cool, by living a fun, outdoor orientated lifestyle filled with adventure whilst minimising my footprint and maximising sustainability practises. 2. Make a conscious effort to reduce energy consumption on a daily basis, and switch to an energy provider who is highly supportive of renewable, clean energy. 3. Buy only sustainable and ethical products e.g. support companies who are by-catch friendly, apply sustainable farming practises and those who are against wide scale logging.
