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.

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.

I will aim to go PLASTIC FREE! I will do this in a number of ways. Firstly, I will aim to bring lunch from home instead of buying food at uni. This way I can ensure that I am using re-usable containers, cutlery and keep cups instead of using the standard take-away options. I will also aim to educate my family and convince them to do the same! In addition, I will ensure that when shopping is being done, cloth bags are always brought - they must become a staple!

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.

Change daily habit

I will eat outside less and bring my own food with reusable box, or if I need to buy, I will choose not to use the plastic packages and bring my own cutleries I will be more selective with my consumption when I do groceries, looking for sustainability resource label and buy local product as well as use reusable bag

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.

Plasticless shopping

I use Green Bags, Keep Cup and all the works when it comes to reducing my plastic consumption. But it is increasingly clear to me that I can do more - so many items come wrapped in plastic, or fruit and veg from the supermarket might be placed in plastic produce bags. So I pledge to only buy items that come in jars, cans, boxes or no packaging at all to ensure that my footprint gets ever smaller.

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!
