GO ZERO PLAstic

When I go shopping, I already use reusable bags, and refuse to buy produce that comes wrapped in plastic. To take this one step further I want to seek out grocers that allow me to buy things using my own reuseable packaging, like rice, pasta, nut, spices ect.

Yes to recycled toilet paper

Promote the impacts non-recycled toilet paper has on the environment, such as 27,000 trees cut down a day to produce toilet paper. As well as convert more toilet paper in my university to recycled toilet paper

Compost to reduce food waste

I will build and commit to using a compost pile at home in order to reduce food waste entering landfill and harming the environment. As a benefit, I'll be able to get great breakdown products out of the compost for use on the garden.

uni-CYCLISTS

Simply ride my bike as much as I can whenever it's feasible. Instead of driving to soccer, the train station and friend's houses I'll ride my bike. The end goal will be to implement a bike riding scheme at Monash Clayton to get people to ride bikes to and from Huntingdale station instead of catching the bus.

say no to bottled water

I'm always using reusable bottles and fill it up everyday. It's not that hard once you get used to it. Eventually you will save money and drink more water.

Save water

Luckily, we live in a country that water is not a problem. However, that doesn't mean that we must not reduce our water consumption. I found that I can bath perfectly with only 2 buckets of water. I know it is really difficult to change into such behaviour but try to do it at least once per week to save water.

Plastic Plague

I'm hoping to reduce my carbon footprint from the resources used in producing plastic and the amount of waste ending in landfill & natural habitats. I will do this by attempting to be more conscientious of the products i'm purchasing and their packaging. I also hope to increase the awareness of the Redcycle program and try and persuade 5 of my friends to use reusable coffee cups. Recently I have been involved with my local State member of Parliament in order to discuss a state wide ban of single use plastics from stores. This involved copious research into the topic. To track my Sustainable Development Goal, I'll record each item of non-reusable plastic that I purchase or use for 3 months and make a list of the people I can get to commit to reusable cups.

think before printing

Sometimes people hit the print button because we are used to see things on paper. However, most of the time compulsion to print is unnecessary. I don’t think people should stop printing but before you do it think whether it is really important.

Separate your waste

I live in an apartment and we have 5 garbage bins. However, I noticed that people don’t separate their waste and put into one garbage bin. So, I decided to print some leaflets and distribute among all tenants live in this place, and put a sticker on bins mentioning which type of waste they can put into those.

go reusable

I'm buying groceries at least 3 times per month. In every time, I went to buy groceries I may have to use minimum 2 bags and this could be more in days that I have to buy more stuff. That means I'm taking more than 4 polythene bags in every month. If people continue such behaviour, think how much of polythene would fill in this city. You do the math. So, I decided change into reusable clothing bags to buy groceries instead of polythene bags. This helps me to take one step to reduce my environmental footprint.
