I will buy nothing new for one month

Of course we don’t mean groceries, but how much can you not buy new? Try your hand at second-hand shopping at some of Auckland’s great op- shops, check TradeMe, search Facebook for local buy/sell or giving groups, and use sites like Neighbourly to swap items with your neighbours.

I will repair or reuse items where I can, instead of upgrading to new

Try looking up fix-it videos on YouTube or guides from ifixit.com. If you’d rather leave it to the experts, for only a gold coin you can bring items needing repair to your local Repair Café for expert repairers in your community to fix it up for you. Follow Repair Café Auckland on Facebook to find the next Repair Café near you.

I will hire or borrow tools and items that I only need occasionally

Libraries aren’t just for books! Hiring or borrowing may not always be your first thought when you need something specific, but next time you need that board game, puzzle, dress, drill or wheelbarrow, why not see if you can hire it locally, or borrow off family, friends or neighbours? Toy libraries are a good place to start, there are plenty right across Auckland.

I will thoughtfully re-home belongings I no longer need

Try selling items on TradeMe, posting them on Neighbourly as free to a good home, donating them to your local second-hand shop, or dropping them off at your local community recycling centre for recycling and reuse.

I will remember to use my own reusable shopping bag for every supermarket visit

It can be hard to remember those bags, so try stashing them in all the places you’re likely to need one – a few in the car, a couple of collapsible ones in your bag, and one on the door handle so you can’t miss it when leaving the house.

Make this pledge and your action could save 10 kg of CO2 per year - the equivalent embodied emissions of 43 large cappuccinos.

I will remember to bring my drink bottle instead of buying a drink when I’m out and about

Buy yourself one good quality reusable water bottle that you enjoy using and keep in your bag (or wherever it’ll be easy to remember). If you enjoy using it, you won’t need to buy a drink on the run.

Make this pledge and your action could save 3 kg of CO2e per year - the equivalent embodied emissions from the production of 38 bananas.

I will remember to take my reusable cup for any takeaway coffees

Either sit down and enjoy your coffee at the cafe, or buy yourself a good quality reusable coffee cup that you enjoy using and keep in your bag (or wherever it’ll be easy to remember). If you forget, consider not having a coffee at all – that way you’ll definitely remember next time.

Make this pledge and your action could save 3 kg of CO2e emissions - that's like running the BBQ for one hour.
