SDG 12: Responsible consumption and production

Ethical consumption

Choose sustainably produced garments. Purchase organic, fair trade cotton. Don't purchase cheap garments which exploit sweatshops in developing countries. Consider intragenerational equity.

Planned OBSOLESCENCE

Stop purchasing shoes, belts, wallets every year. Opt for quality over quantity. Choose shoes that will last me a decade rather than a year. Take care and maintain quality of possessions. Get shoes re-soled rather than purchasing new shoes. Reduce waste and fight planned obsolescence.

Go vegan

It has been a couple of weeks since I stopped eating meat. It is much easier than I anticipated. Not only do I feel great, I save money and I am getting in shape. I will now attempt to stop eating animal products and eventually go vegan. #noanimalproducts

Revolutionising our rubbish

I will attempt to minimise the waste to landfill that our household (as a whole) produces, given that greenhouse gases produced from landfill are a major contributor to global warming, and use diverted organic waste to reduce my own personal demand for fresh produce by using the newly-created compost to help grow my own vegetables!

Do you really need to print?

Universities as educational insitutions produce a lot of paper waste; but do they have to? Digitization of documents have significantly improved the user-experience of reading academic documents through electronic devices. I pledge to reduce printing of documents, hence reducing consumption of papers unncessarily.

Growing my own food

I just spent the whole weekend planting a veggie patch in my back garden so I can grow fresh, organic food for myself and my family. This meets several goals all at once. I will be getting more exercise and eating more healthy, vegetarian food. Growing your own food is also better for the environment, as there is no pollution from transport, pesticides or fertilizers, and the plants act as a carbon sink. My next step is to plant some native plants to help improve biodiversity in my area.

SUSTAINABLE CONSUMPTION

I purchase sustainable and ethically sourced products wherever I can! This product is my favourite! I also minimise my use of plastic bags and ensure my products don't contain any microplastics that can be consumed by marine life! My one step would be to reduce all use of plastic bags and other plastics!

Op shop > topshop

I pledge to only purchase second hand clothing and footwear for the next 6 months, as well as to increase the frequency with which I borrow/rent items as opposed to buying them.
