Gloves recycling initiative

I have already taken steps towards sustainability in my personal life and now I think it's time for me to start taking steps towards sustainability in my professional life. The Department of Emergency Health and Paramedic Practice teaches paramedic students how to perform emergency procedures that could be life-saving, but practicing these skills means that there will be a huge amount of waste produced to let the students practice. I plan to lobby the department to fund a recycling program that will include; nitrile gloves, soft plastic packaging and PVC waste that is produced when students are practicing medical procedures. The image below is how much disposable waste is produced just to practice one IV, now imagine if every student in the department practices just one IV every time they go to class.

Support Local Produce

My pledge would be to start buying locally grown produce by supporting local farmer's markets as well as growing my own indoor herbs garden. The advantages includes but not limited to: 1) Reducing Food Miles-Transport of food consumes lots of fossil fuels the further the transport, increasing our carbon emission. 2) Preserve and protect biodiversity of smaller farm lands. 3) Promote awareness, health and wellbeing.

Invest in Girls

Although society has grown from its patriarchal past, we still have a long way to go. The status of women and the inequalities faced by a female who occupies this world still exists in various forms. In a world that does not present an equal amount of opportunities for male and female to coexist, I pledge to recognise and alter the different ways in which we can restore gender equality and educate generations to come.

Educate, motivate, inspire

When I first arrived in Melbourne, I was appalled to see the the blatant use of plastic bags in supermarkets and coffee cups all over the "most liveable city". Being born and raised in Bangalore, the IT capital of India - also known for being a heavily polluted city which has struggled to manage its waste, I have witnessed my beautiful hometown deteriorate over the last 10 years. However, there seems to be hope as there is a Plastic ban that has been implemented and student bodies in bangalore are volunteering to clean-up the city and have made incredible progress. Having travelled to a few different countries in my time, I have observed one thing in common around the world. That is waste management around the world is considered the responsibility of the government in power and of civic bodies. My step? I intend to spread awareness about the use of plastics and the damage it does through social media channels and by launching a digital social media campaign to STOP the use of plastics once and for all. I intend to start with spreading the message in Monash University and educate and inspire young students to be more conscious about their actions. What we need today is people with well formed minds rather than well educated minds.

Thank you for doing so! And definitely, not using pesticides is so much better for our environment! However, I would like to precise that organic production must be combined to a responsible consumption. When buying organic fruits and veggies try and not look at what the product looks like =) if too small, a bit bruised, or simply not perfect. Having the "food beauty standards" up to supermarket levels, creates a picky consumer, and often organic produce goes to waste because it is not "fake perfect"!
