I’m working on a film that highlights stories of refugees who have come to Australia seeking asylum. Their stories give me hope and I hope they inspire others as well.
I seek out purpose driven work as much as possible. Some of my friends run charities and social enterprises, I support them by working for them.
I try to work with companies that are in line with my values. I feel better when my work is benefitting others or the planet.
I try to watch our house electricity and water consumption. I choose shorter wash cycles, try not to use the dryer, and turn the power points off.
I grew up vegetarian and sometimes vegan. I try only buy organic dairy that comes from farms where they don’t mistreat the cows.
I don’t use single use plastics (whenever possible).
I recently donated money to friends who provided food to people in Bali and India. A lot of families haven’t been able to afford food since the pandemic and loss of tourism.
I used to give $40 monthly donations to Oxfam for many years.
I often donate clothes to charities and womens shelters, sometimes directly to the families in need.
I take my friends dogs out for walks when I have time off in the week.
