Reduce sharehouse comsumption

With the current pandemic meaning more time spent at home, I have become increasingly aware of the overconsumptive behaviours that myself and my friends engage in. In our share house of four there is an excess of food wastes, rubbish and goods. This has caused me to reflect on our actions and encourage myself and friends to do better together. This has included introducing a compost/food waste bin which will be used for our food scraps. I have also encouraged group meals 1-2 times a week so that we can get through our food together and ensure that there is less waste. In addition, we have begun collaborating when doing our shoppping to ensure that we are buying in bulk what we all use - this directly reduces plastic/wrapping waste. Furthermore, I have been actively trying to educate myself, and others on the impacts that our consumption is having and how small changes can be very beneficial. I aim to introduce more sustainable food wraps and containers. As well as ensuring we are educated on the recycling practices and procedures.
