The issue

• 17 out of 82 species that were assessed in Australian waters were classified as over-fished

• 23% of CO2 emissions come from importing goods from Asia

• 500,000 tonnes of clothes equivalent to the weight of 100,000 elephants end up in landfill every year

• 13% of CO2 emissions come from cattle & agriculture

What you can do

• Consider eating less meat and more fruit, veggies and wholefoods

• Buy local & sustainably grown and sourced products

• Grow your own fruit & veggies if you can

How it will contribute

• Reducing your beef consumption to once a week would save 1.5 tonnes of greenhouse emissions per year per person, which is equivalent to planting 19 trees every year to offset your energy usage

• Buying 50% of your fruit and vegetables from local produce, which is equivalent to planting 23 trees every year to offset your energy usage

• Growing your own food could save 1 tonne of greenhouse emissions per year per person, which is equivalent to planting 15 trees every year to offset your energy usage
