reread the books

By giving our old books for others, I believe that we not only spread knowledge to whom need it, but we also save cost for printing and cutting down trees for paper. Cre of the photo:

Use Jute Bags for shopping

I wanted the most eco friendly bags to use for shopping, as the green supermarket bags are still a type of plastic. Cotton, and even organic cotton, still use a lot of resources ( water and chemcials for nonorganic) to produce. Jute however requires much less water, grows quickly and requires minimal to no fertiliser. Although I was aware of the carbon miles the bags would travel, I chose to buy some made by a Bangladeshi Womens Co-op and the bags are fantastic. Best still, I can home compost them when they are no longer useable:)

MOO Hungry

I,ll try not to let waste food dump in the fields so as to reduce green house gas emission. Dumping waste food is the biggest concern of now as approximately 20% of food bought for consumption is wasted i.e., 1 bag of grocery out of 5 bags purchased. Dumped waste food produces methane and other harmful gases which effects the environment. Also every 1 person out of 100 in Australia are living homeless and don't have money to buy food for three times a day. Raising this issue to globalization may help save us, our family, our friends, our loved ones and most of all important our global home OUR EARTH!

High five

I believe that an individual action can lead to collective change, creating a sustainable community. Sustainable communities are communities planned, built, or modified to promote sustainable living. This may include sustainable aspects relating to equality, water, transportation, energy, and waste and materials. On the other hand, communication, which is also a part of our sustainable living, ought to be improved by individual’s action. From my experience, in order to relieve my stress in school network, to better merging into local communities, I want to make a change to high five with passengers in campus. During this action, I’m surprised that strangers were easygoing and willing to high five with me, which gave me big encouragement. Therefore, I hope this action is able to pass on friendly to strangers and create a sustainable community in campus.

start a scholarship fund

With being privileged to have access to so many resources, I want to connect with people, and start a scholarship fund which enables students to get higher education or even start a sustainable movement within their home country. I hope I can act as the link and make a difference even in one person's life.

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!

Socially Conscious Consumer

With every purchasing decision, try to consider the most socially responsible and viable consumer option - eg. local farmers' dairy products, charity-backed products, greener options. This may increase purchasing decision time and cost, or convenience, but the positive social and/or environmental effects exponentially outweigh this!
