Terence's Actions

Personal Care

That Was a Close Shave

I will replace my disposable razors with steel razors. Why not try using hair conditioner instead of shaving foam for that baby smooth feel?

    Come on HR team, we are 200 points behind.
  • Reflection Question
    Family Provide the Alternatives
    What single-use items (e.g. straws, coffee cups, vegetable bags, plastic bags) does your family regularly use? What could be substituted instead?

    Terence Leung 7/08/2020 11:37 PM
    we bring our own lunchbox when buying takeaways or ask the restaurant not to provide one-off tableware 
  • Reflection Question
    Personal Care That Was a Close Shave
    What have you noticed about the economic and social impact of switching to steel razors? Was there ever really a need for disposable razors, or do you think it was just a way to sell more things?

    Terence Leung 7/08/2020 11:35 PM
    using electronic shaver which don't require changing blades often
  • Reflection Question
    Lifestyle Buy Only What I Need
    As you have reduced your spending, what have you noticed about your 'health and safety' purchasing habits? How might this change your longer term purchasing decisions?

    Terence Leung 7/08/2020 11:34 PM
    have a shopping list with you every time i go supermarket! make sure we won't miss anything and think twice before buying something extra
  • Reflection Question
    Food Use Reusable Containers
    How can you think outside the box (or bag!) when it comes to disposables?

    Terence Leung 7/08/2020 11:31 PM
    using own lunchbox for takeaways or try bring your own lunch!
  • Reflection Question
    Pets All Natural Pet Toys
    In what ways is supplying your pet with all natural pet toys better for your pet, better for you, and better for the environment?

    Terence Leung 7/06/2020 6:41 PM
    we made DIY pet toys using old cloths
  • Reflection Question
    Food Skip the Straw
    Have you noticed a shift in your community as more messaging about reusable straws becomes mainstream? Cite some examples.

    Terence Leung 7/06/2020 6:39 PM
    I don't like to use straws for my drinks, simple as that
  • Reflection Question
    Family Discover Together
    What concerns you the most about how we are affecting the planet? Consider both local and global actions.

    Terence Leung 7/06/2020 6:35 PM
    HK is lacking of promotions and support from the government, recycling are not convenience in most community. The government should add more recycle stations and man power on recycling.  
  • Reflection Question
    Family Plastic Free Lunch Boxes
    Most of us know that the "3 R's" are reduce, reuse, recycle. Recycling is most heavily emphasized in modern Western culture. How could you incorporate other "R's" -- reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose, etc. -- into your lifestyle? How does considering implementing these "R's" make you feel?

    Terence Leung 6/29/2020 12:04 AM
    I use biodegradable lunch box instead of traditional plastic lunch box
