Take public Transport to UNi

I am going to continue taking the train and bus to get to university. Not only can I relax on the commute, but taking public transport also contributes to the reducing emissions. Plus, you can catch up with your friends on the way!

Let the air be your dryer

Whether inside or out, reduce your electricity and energy consumption by not using a dryer to dry your clothes. So many people I know still use dryers...we don't need them. Every little step counts.

Taking an even bigger step!

I have been accepted into the 40K Globe foundation for a summer internship working in rural India! I am so excited I can get out there and help make a positive change in the energy and water sectors of such a great social business, creating clean renewable energy access to those in India that don't have power and helping make clean water more accessable. I am very excited and nervous for the culture shock I know I will get, but hopefully it will only push me to continue in working towards creating a more positive and sustainable world!

Vegtember!

It's day twenty of Vegtember, and I have decide to stop eating meat this month, and hopefully be able continue into the future as a result of the impact agriculture has had on our environment and its contribution to global warming. The way humans are currently eating is not sustainable for our planet and increasing population.

Nice Step! How do you plan to adjust your diet - I have tried to reduce my meat consumption and I actually had to learn to cook a lot better...

Eating a pescetarian diet for a couple of weeks helped me transition first, and as a meat lover it was very hard at first but having two vegetarian room mates really helped me stay on track and once you learn some vegetarian recipes you realise how much more colourful and flavoursome they are than meat based dishes!

I reckon this is a good step if you can achieve it. How do you find it? I still find it easier to take notes on paper sometimes even though I know it's less sustainable...

I will commit to walking to uni at least two days a week

David Robertson | 09/20/2016 - 10:05

How's your Step going? I find it's easier to want to walk if there are a few nice things to see along the way - even if it requires a detour into a park or the like.
