VEGAN DIET

The meat, egg and dairy industries are by far the largest contributors to many of the world's environmental and sustainability issues, so I will be permanently changing to a solely plant based diet.

Plastic Free

When eating on campus I will NOT use any plastic disposable cutlery. Instead I will carry my own cutlery for when I eat on campus.

NUDE FOOD

Although I am already a religious user of my Coles green bags and reusable coffee cup, I have realised that there is an excessive amount of plastic packaging out there which is a much bigger problem! Supermarkets Shelves and uni cafes are full of items wrapped in Single use Plastics, which all end up in landfill or fly away into the ocean. I am saying NO to all single use plastic, which is a challenge, but not only would it have a huge effect on the environment, eating raw wholefoods rather than processed packaged food is healthier for everyone!

COmmit to a green lifestyle

To only use sustainable resources and reduce my personal waste and try and influence those around me . I commit to using my car less, taking public transport, not using disposable containers or plastic bags and living a vegan lifestyle. I hope my actions will make those around me think about their own actions as well.

Reduce Food Waste

After taking on a research project last semester on the extent and impact of food waste in Australia I have become very conscious of how much food goes to waste in my household. Before this I hadn't even thought about how much methane is created by sending food to landfill, and the devastating effect of these additional GHGs on our climate and ecosystems. So I am committing to reducing my household's food waste through more conscious shopping and cooking, and the use of our newly completed worm farms (a little semester break DYI!) to turn any remaining waste into liquid fertiliser for the garden :)

vego for life

Last year in the Take One Step Program, I committed to Vegtember, a month of being vegetarian, and since then I decided to only eat fish for a while, but learnt about how depleted our oceans have become so since the start of this year I have committed to not eating meat! It is still a challenge for me who loves meat and seafood, yet the thought of eating it anymore only makes me think of the huge impact the meat industry has on the land, oceans and climate which is much more important than 5 minutes of satisfaction for myself!

PTV Is amazing!

I have become so conscious of the environmental impacts of all of my actions, growing up in the country I am so used to driving my car everywhere but and this year I have decided to sell my little car, I haven't used it for the last 3 months and it is a VW which are notoriously bad for the environment! PTV is now my new best friend and I have been able to get everywhere, although life may take some more planning, the small effort it takes for me will be better for the planet

I find public transport to go to the city so much more convenient anyways!
