SDG 14: Sustainable oceans

Today was the first time I hosted a dinner party with friends, and I asked everyone to bring RE-USABLE food containers and utensils, so that we could minimize our trash. I was so glad to see everyone's compliance to my request!! I COMMIT TO continuing this practice for all the future food events that I plan. I hope that this also inspires my guests tonight (and all my guests in the future) to continue this practice, creating an even bigger impact!

When I go shopping, I already use reusable bags, and refuse to buy produce that comes wrapped in plastic. To take this one step further I want to seek out grocers that allow me to buy things using my own reuseable packaging, like rice, pasta, nut, spices ect.

Yes to recycled toilet paper

Promote the impacts non-recycled toilet paper has on the environment, such as 27,000 trees cut down a day to produce toilet paper. As well as convert more toilet paper in my university to recycled toilet paper

Simply ride my bike as much as I can whenever it's feasible. Instead of driving to soccer, the train station and friend's houses I'll ride my bike. The end goal will be to implement a bike riding scheme at Monash Clayton to get people to ride bikes to and from Huntingdale station instead of catching the bus.

Plastic Plague

I'm hoping to reduce my carbon footprint from the resources used in producing plastic and the amount of waste ending in landfill & natural habitats. I will do this by attempting to be more conscientious of the products i'm purchasing and their packaging. I also hope to increase the awareness of the Redcycle program and try and persuade 5 of my friends to use reusable coffee cups. Recently I have been involved with my local State member of Parliament in order to discuss a state wide ban of single use plastics from stores. This involved copious research into the topic. To track my Sustainable Development Goal, I'll record each item of non-reusable plastic that I purchase or use for 3 months and make a list of the people I can get to commit to reusable cups.
