1 Million Women – A campaign of daughters, mothers, sisters and grandmothers – Committed to protecting our climate, our communities and our future, leading change for the better.
Our goal is to inspire 1 million Australian women to take practical action on climate change by cutting 1 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2), the main greenhouse pollutant causing global warming.
Every woman who joins has a personal goal to cut 1 tonne of CO2 from their daily lives within a year of joining the campaign.
On the 1 Million Women website you’ll be guided through ways to cut your 1 tonne, and to track your progress as you go along. You don’t have to be an expert on climate change. Just join up and we’ll guide you every step of the way.
1 Million Women – a million tonnes of CO2. It’s a huge challenge.
With your help we will make it happen.June 8, 2009 at 11:14 pm #414937
It is a great initiative for the general public to do easy ‘stuff’.
I looked through all the areas and I am already doing 90% of it. :tup:
But I can improve in some areas…especially food wastage.
If only I could find a local chicken owner!!
The amount of food my kids waste drives me nuts :confused:June 8, 2009 at 11:28 pm #414938
I joined, always up for a challenge. Will be forwarding address to a few friends.June 8, 2009 at 11:30 pm #414939
I joined, and worked out that I have already saved nearly 5.8 tonnes of green house gasses, by the practices I have already put into place. Getting another tonne will move me into the much harder stuff.June 9, 2009 at 12:19 am #414940
i joined! great way to keep track, i didn’t realise some of the things i was doing saved so muchJune 9, 2009 at 2:03 am #414941
I joined up too! Its interesting where they say to limit the dairy intake to 2 cups per week.. I didn’t realise that dairy was bad for the environment! Yay for being dairy-free! 😉 Then again, the amount of meat I eat probably makes up for it. :pJune 9, 2009 at 4:10 am #414942
The dairy thing would be the degredation of land for farms, the methane generated by the cows, the processing and transport costs, same sort of impacts that you get with beef.June 9, 2009 at 11:01 am #414943
I joined this today, I am doing a few things as well, always room for improvement. 😀June 9, 2009 at 10:24 pm #414944
I joined last night and got a few friends to join as well.
Surprised me :jawdrop:with the small amount of rubbish I put out each week in the bin added up to 94ks a year. Will try to be getting that down to 10 if I can.
I found it hard to work out the gas and water as we are on tanks and buy a large gas bottle every 18 months will have to divide the weight buy the time we have it
