4. Eat less meat
Reducing your meat intake can make a big difference. According to the Climate Council 70% of global agricultural emissions come directly from livestock farming and they also account for 37% of total worldwide methane emissions.
Can't go completely meat-free? That's ok - try to cut down and have meat free days and meals.
Australia wastes a lot of food. When food rots in landfill instead of being composted, it produces methane, a greenhouse gas that is 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide.
To cut down on food waste, try shopping with a grocery list, purchase less, eat your leftovers and compost your scraps.
7. Bring your own bag
As South Australians, we've done an amazing job at creating the habit of taking our own bags to the grocery store. Try to extend this habit and take your own bag when you are shopping for clothes too. Always have one in your bag or car.
8. Be kind to yourself
There will be times when you forget your keep cup or buy something in a packet and that's ok. Remember that we can't be perfect all the time and if more of us try to live waste-free imperfectly we can change the world.
