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". =)

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.

12 litres shower

I discovered with my little son (15 months old) that we just need 12 litres of water, one bucket and a small toy "duck" to create a wonderful moment of our shower time. At the end we are clean, we'll save a lot of water at year!!!

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.

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.

turning off power points

We are all guilty of doing this. A great way to save energy (and money!) is to turn off switches when they are not being used around home, work and university

No more PALM OIL products

Sustainability and social justice play a huge role in my life from day to day. With some thought, I have identified a giant gap. I have been eating a vegan diet for approximately 8 years, but in order to go completely cruelty free and ethical, it's time for me to get serious about comprehensively responsible consumption. I pledge to avoid the purchase of any products containing palm oil (linked to deforestation, climate change, habitat degradation, animal abuse and indigenous rights abuses). I intend to make this a permanent change. Looking forward to the adjustment!
