SDG 10: Reduce inequalities

treat everyone with kindness

We all live in this world together & there should not be any discrimination to people from any background such as different race, religion, working class, social class & gender. All over the world, countless discrimination & unfair treatment of said classes are happening hiding under our just society. Though, various human rights organisations such as 'Human Rights Watch" & more countries have been campaigning to impose human rights, we also have the power to change our own society & how we treat our fellow human beings around us. Whether it be a smile, a nod, a concern, an understanding, an acknowledgement, a hug, no matter how small a gesture, if it's compassionate, it definitely will go a thousand miles to make positive & kinder change to all the people around us. So, with genuine intentions, start asking how are their days doing to a random cleaner. Give a hand to a overburdened waitress waiting your table. Show empathy & compassion to unique individuals with autism, blindness or deaf. Respect a fellow college student from a different country & culture. If you have a domestic helper, treat him or her like how you would treat your friend. The kinder we are as a whole, the kinder the society will become :)

narrow social gap

Social gap is becoming wider and wider as economic boost. Mid-class people are likely to take their weath and social status for granted. Sometimes they just forget to help people who need help or only focus on make their own fortune. What I want to do is prompting people to give their hands to someone who really need help, someone who are suffering by writing articles on social media. As for me myself, I want to be as volunteer to help people who can not afford their education, who can not afford even a book at least once by the end of the year.

This is a strong approach, although it is potentially inaccessible for some due to the car-centric infrastructure in place for many regions in urban and suburban environments.

I don't know why this posted here-- This website is wild, it was showing a goal around 6km daily walking goals.

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:)

Think about it!

1. Think about animals by swapping all cosmetics to cruelty free brands 2. Think about minimising waste/plastic by using a keep cup, my own lunch box, reusing bags, bringing my own cutlery and using my soda stream instead of buying mineral water 3. Think about people by researching whether brands look after their employees and if they take steps to minimise their environmental impact, in an attempt to stop fast fashion, buy sustainable pieces and reduce inequalities between countries.

Vegan

For the next three months, I pledge to exclusively eat plant-based foods to reduce my carbon footprint. Animal agriculture is the second leading cause of habitat loss and a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. This is having large-scale and unpredictable consequences for the environment and many non-human animals! In Australia, hooved animals are drastically reducing the quality of our soils, which under predicted climate scenarios will drastically decrease crop yield and productivity! Now is the time to act, and voting with our forks is a powerful act indeed!

BUY LOCAL

Fot the next three months, I pledge to buy all my vegetables locally! Localisation is a fantastic tool for fighting environmental problems, as it reduces the energy required to transport food, reduces plastic packaging and can divert food from landfill due to strict corporate (wesfarmers) cosmetic standards!
