    Predominantly, we would need to cease using fossil fuels if we are to seriously consider having a sustainable community. Through my research I have found myriad alternatives to using fossil fuels, including methane digesters. I believe we need to have more discussions, spread more information and lobby our government to start making effective...

    Last day of the challenge! I hope everyone has had an awesome time competing in the Drawdown EcoChallenge and is trying extra hard now that we are at the final stretch :) Good luck and have fun!

    I don't believe my transportation choices affect me too much, but only with regards to time. I love going for walks and walking from the train station to university, as it gives me time to think and just enjoy myself in the present. Driving is equally enjoyable, whether I'm the passenger or the one behind the wheel. Be that as it may, I much...

    Public transportation in my opinion is actually great. I love the effortlessness of taking the train and being able to admire your surroundings. I have always been an avid fan of transportation (as odd as that sounds). I love taking the buses, trains, planes; so taking public transport to university was seriously as no-brainer. The fact that...

    I think we could begin to shift a meat-focused food culture by introducing healthy, delicious, plant-based alternatives. Businesses such as Grill'd are already on this trajectory. Whilst I believe this is an enormous task, there are an innumerable amount of plant-based, vegan swaps that could appropriately substitute the flavour of meat. I...

    As a result of eating smaller portions, it is very likely that you will not eat more than what is necessary. Therefore, you will be less likely to feel bloated after a meal and will have consumed a 'healthy' amount of food (depending on what food you ate). I have been swapping out large plates/bowls for our smaller plates/bowls for most of my...

    I have always been a person concerned about food waste. Composting is very much an interest of mine, and as of today we have begun our own compost bin! Our council has recently changed it regulations with regards to composting and has begun accepting food scraps in our green bins. As a result, my mum and I decided that we should get a new...

    Only two days of the challenge to go! Everyone appears to be ramping up now, so I will do my best to learn and do as much as I can before the end of day 22 :) Good luck everyone!

    Before the challenge, I was already doing my part as a zero waste advocate, but having to commit to 2 zero-waste meal preps per day has made me accountable, and I love it! I now enjoy my zero waste, bought in bulk Sultana Bran alternative, and smoothies as much as I can with winter coming! And will be attempting homemade tortillas soon, so we...

    Overall, transportation accounts for 14% of global electricity emissions. However, this statistic may continue to rise, as the economic growth of countries often engenders the increased movement of goods and people. As a result, I will persist with being mindful of how I use transportation and will continue to rely on public transportation as...
