Grow Green

This year I have pledged to grow and maintain a vegetable garden in line with permaculture principles. My one step involves undertaking a holistic approach to gardening from composting, planting and harvesting to appreciating the health and well-being benefits of gardening. 1) Do companion planting to encourage biodiversity, particularly beneficial insects, such as bees! 2) Use mulch and compost to reduce water inputs and reduce food waste. 3) Watch and learn from growing – ‘observe and interact’ with the garden. Share my freshly grown organic vegetables and herbs with family and friends, so we all enjoy the health benefits of more veggies and less pesticides! *See image for my progress so far ~

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.

We've golden soil and wealth for toil?

To protect the environment, we should never buy food with useless packages wherever you go. Also, get the right amount of food and stop food wastage, especially when part of Australia is now under drought and it is our responsibility to protect our golden soil and wealth for toil.

re-thinking food waste

I pledge to firstly reduce the amount of food waste I produce and secondly to use a compost for any food scraps. Food waste in landfill contributes harmful greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. Composting is a great way to repurpose food scraps by turning them into a soil conditioner and also reduce greenhouse gases.

Most of us dont realise how much food we are wasting everyday. So I make a conscious effort to buy only the food items I need and will use. I have also researched on how to store the perishable food items so that they stay fresh and last longer

Going vegan and encouraging o

I have decided to reduce my carbon footprint by going vegan. With enough people changing their deit to vegan, this will drastically reduce land usage, chemical run off, carbon and methane production, while increasing people's health and well-being. Veganism is a more sustainable use of resources and is the future if we want to achieve Sustainability. I have pledged to eat vegan as I cannot be a sustainable designer or human if I support the world's largest environmental issue. I hope by the end of the semester I can be fully vegan as at the moment my diet is roughly 90% vegan - I also hope to encourage at least 2 friends or family members to also go vegan.

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:)
