Food delivery sector continues to grow, but it inherently produces a large amount of plastic waste. Why not cooking at home and post your chopping board art!

Vego Lifestyle Promotion

I pledge to become a vegetarian (for environmental, ethical and economic reasons), promote to other Monash students how to live a healthy vego lifestyle. I aim to achieve this through collaborating with The Student Body Project, through volunteering on their "free food stall", organising vego food try-outs, promotion of their events & brand and writing articles about vegetarianism on their website. Additionally, I pleadge to shop at local grocers and sources more environmentally sustainable produce.

Support Local Produce

My pledge would be to start buying locally grown produce by supporting local farmer's markets as well as growing my own indoor herbs garden. The advantages includes but not limited to: 1) Reducing Food Miles-Transport of food consumes lots of fossil fuels the further the transport, increasing our carbon emission. 2) Preserve and protect biodiversity of smaller farm lands. 3) Promote awareness, health and wellbeing.

Reduce food waste

Food waste isn't only a huge issue in supermarkets but in individual house holds too. By shopping from small, local grocers and boycotting fresh goods from large supermarket I will support zero food waste. Also I will implement a seperate food waste bin in my house hold to track and be accountable for the food wastage per week.
