inspiring youth futures

My step is to create a piece of theatre for young audiences that engages today's youth with discussions about sustainable futures in a way that is compassionate and honest, inspiring young people to take action rather than being scared away from ideas that seem to big to handle. This will be done using as many sustainable practices as possible including; making a site specific work that relies on the beauty of nature as the set of the piece, using found and second hand objects to design the piece and will be using covid safe practices to make this as accessible and inclusive as possible.

Dont throw away old clothes

As the fast fashion industry develops rapidly, more poor quality garments are produced, which can only be worn one or two years. I will reduce my consumption on fashion. Try to ask myself, who makes my clothes? Do they work in an ethical working environment? What's the cost? Try to give the second life to our old garments. So, the first step, I will donate my old clothes to the local charity. Or, I will recycle them.

REDUCE PLASTIC WASTE

We have at least 20 reusable bags at home, but we either forget to bring, or not bring enough for grocery runs. So we have this giant pile of solely plastic bags. For now, I am the only person who wants to change this, but I hope to educate my housemates to improve our living habits.

Smart shareholder

I have become a shareholder recently and am beginning to diversify my portfolio - however, I want to be investing in companies that have policy in place for a better future. As I continue to invest I will be a shareholder of ethical and sustainable companies that have a better future regarding any SDGs in focus. Vote with your wallet! photo credit: Emma Tkalcevic

Sun and planet safe

To reduce the plastic that i am throwing away and the air mileage of the goods i use and subsequent carbon footprint i will make my own natural suncream from oils, beeswax and vitamin E. I will put it in glass jars that can be reused for many years to come.

raise awareness via instagram

I will start an Instagram account linking climate change to social justice issues in Australia with simple steps to take action e.g. how to write to your MP, fossil fuel divestment and more.

SMARTER ABOUT WASTE

So much waste is put in the wrong bin, recycled with contaminents and biodegradable products are confused as recycling! I'm going to make sure this month I dispose of all my waste the correct way even if it means i have to hold onto my green waste until I get home to put it in my bin!

Cleaning up coastal areas

I got to the beach for a swim everyday - leaving with a handful of rubbish helps to stop marine and coastal animals from harm from plastic and other materials. I planning to make an art piece with the rubbish to prevent it's life in the ocean.

keep cups only

I will not (and have not this year) use a takeaway coffee cup all year. If coffee places arent accepting keep cups because of COVID-19, I take my cup to 7/11 or similar to get coffee from there! I also buy Huskee keep cups that are made from the by-products of coffee production and are environmentally sustainable.

NUDE FOOD

Having worked part time in the hospitality industry for the last 5 years, I have become painfully aware of how much packaging and food waste is sent to landfill each day. I have always made an effort to minimise my consumption of single use plastics where possible however COVID-19 restrictions resulting in an upsurge of takeaway culture has halted much of the progression made towards sustainability in the hospitality industry. As I partake in this challenge I plan to do the following. 1. Grow fresh herbs at home 2. Continue to use my compost bin 3. Endeavour to buy less food in packaging by shopping in bulk where possible. 4. Continue to support small businesses in the hospitality industry by choosing to eat in if there is not a sustainable takeaway option

It's definitely a good idea to protect the environment
