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.

Learning more about recycling

I have heard a lot about recycling and I regularly recycle, but I realised I might be doing it wrong! For my one step, I want to be clearer about what I can and can't recycle in my council. I am going to read the specific guidelines and resources created by my council. My early actions will save someone else a lot of time later on, and there is always more I can learn about this topic. Educating yourself inspires others to learn too.

FARM FRESH TO MORE TABLES

Over this past month I have committed to taking 2 days a week to go farmer’s market shopping for my grandparents and their elderly friends. They were previously customers of Coles Online as they are in poor health. My thought behind this initiative was that by taking the time to buy fresh and local for people who couldn’t would therefore increase the amount of local produce bought and subsequently decreasing the consequences which come from the convenience of store bought produce. Buying locally reduces transportation emissions and ingredients are more fresh so when bought directly there is less waste.

Knowledge is power

I want to continue informing myself of more sustainable steps I can take in my personal life but also in the wider scope of community and global. This week I went to support the Schoolstrike4climate and on the weekend I went to an event which spoke about ethical business planning. I want to continue each week expanding my knowledge on our current climate crises and become involved in a regular movement e.g friends of the earth

Fight Food Waste

I am going to pledge to fight food waste in 3 ways, which will help to reduce food sent to landfill and thus reduce the production harmful greenhouse emissions in the long term. 1) Continue to recycle my food scraps and use the compost I produce for my veggie garden; 2) Support food rescues by volunteering at my local Foodbank; 3) Reduce my plate waste by making sure I finish all the food on my plate or at least ensure food can be stored and saved for later. Overall, I hope to minimise my food print!

Better Education

I'm hoping to start an awareness campaign for better mental healthcare facilities in schools in my home country of Bangladesh before the end of this year. I will do this by approaching schools with a detailed plan of action and running workshops that explain how much it helps students to have mental healthcare available to them and how this leads to better education. I also plan on getting five friends involved in my campaign to spread awareness on better mental healthcare in Bangladesh.

INDIA EFFICIENT LIGHTING

Currently in India, communities are still using kerosene lamps. Bring LED lights to communities is more sustainable for the future, allows people to study at night, and travel safely during night time.
