#GREXY - IT'S A REAL WORD... USED TO DESCRIBE A SEXY OR APPEALING PERSON WHO IS ALSO A GREENIE

HollyClothBag3

Well not really, but what else do you call someone who is doing their greenie thing with an extra dose of HOT!

The food we choose to eat contributes more to our eco-footprint than our transport and home energy usage combined. We know that’s not a very sexy statement, but it’s true.

What is sexy is when someone brings the cool back into caring, that’s why we’ve coined the term #grexy (sexy greenie).

#GREXY is that guy you see at your local grocer with the cloth bag swung casually over his shoulder.

#GREXY is the woman in the power suit asking to have her latte-to-go in a keep cup.

#GREXY is asking if the chicken’s free range.

#GREXY TEASER

keep your cup

Cut the disposable cup, carry a drink bottle and request your drinks shaken, not strawed.

This means that for the month you pledge to buy your takeaway drinks in a reusable cup and say no to bottled water and straws.


Cost to you

Starts at just $20
(with the option to make an additional donation to Sustainable Table’s Awareness & Education programs)

Phew, no need to ask your mates for money


Benefit to you

The plastic used to make water and soft drink bottles contains chemicals (including BPA and phthalates) that have been shown to have harmful effects on our health, interfering with our endocrine and reproductive systems. Cutting your use of plastics means you’re reducing your exposure to these toxins, making for a much sexier you.


Benefit to the planet

If everyone in Australia carried their own tap water instead of buying bottled water for one year, it would save 60,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions (which is what is created by producing and distributing our bottled water needs each year).

This saving would be the equivalent of taking 13,000 cars off the road.[i]

HALFWAY TO #GREXY

meat-free weekdays

Make meat a treat, get your veg on and commit to meat-free weekdays for a month.

Show the world that eating veg is just about as grexy as it gets. Making meat a (free range) treat also tastes way better and is great for the environment too.


Cost to you

Starts at just $20
(with the option to make an additional donation to Sustainable Table’s Awareness & Education programs)

Phew, no need to ask your mates for money


Benefit to you

Only 1 in 20 of us eat enough fruit and vegetables. At the same time, we’re chowing down twice as much red meat as recommended to us by our health guidelines. This wacked out eating is contributing to diseases like obesity, type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease and some cancers.

Get more veg in your gob and watch your body glow with health!


Benefit to the planet

A 2015 study concluded that a diet that is vegetarian 5 days a week and includes meat 2 days a week would reduce greenhouse gas emissions and water and land use by about 45%.[ii] It would also reduce our reliance on the cruel and widespread practice of factory farming.
