Little things I’ve done so far
1. Thrifty closet
I buy vintage or secondhand clothes (for the sake of trend cycle, whatever). It will also save your money, a lot
2. Air conditioner dilemma
We know that Jakarta is friggin hot like hell nowadays, so I keep up the not-so-fresh-air blowing on me from opening all the windows and doors in my room.
Helps your parents to decrease the electricity bill too, lol
3. Look after your charger
Always keep it unplugged after I finished
4. Take the bus
I can’t drive so I take the bus too reach my campus. But I always feel glad when my friends ask me to join their cars. Whatever you say, Metromini(s) are uncool, fags, not so urban, not trendy, fucked up. It’s an indie way to reach wherever you want :p
5. 5 minutes shower
6. Do it your damn self
I made some accessories from secondhand stuffs, tie-dyeing, etc. I’m not a handy person though, so now I’m learning and seeking for more stuff to be crafted. It feels good to wear something you make by yourself.
7. Buy handmade
Or if you’re too lazy to make stuff, just buy the handmade one.
8. Back-off you tees
Don’t waste you unwanted tees. Just flip them! Or if you want something special, grab some markers, painting kit or whatever, and then draw all over the area!
This idea came from Rifat Najmi
9. BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag)
At least, say no to plastic bags aka kantong kresek
10. Long live bottled water
Because I drink like a camel (I usually drink 3 Litres of water a day), I bring my very own bottle everyday. Hail mineral water… Mineral water over CocaCola.. Mineral water over avocado juice.. Mineral water over Teh Botol.. Mineral water over Bir Bintang
11. Watch An Inconvenient Truth
12. Read The Live Earth Global Warming Survival Handbook: 77 Essential Skills To Stop Climate Change
13. The list is still going
So, what are you doing to be a hero for our little earth?
