- Instead of waiting until last minute, plan ahead and make less impulsive fashion related purchases. I know that when I wait until the last minute, not only do I spend more time and money, but also am more likely to buy things that I do not need and will eventually throw away after one use.
- Be more diligent with the design projects that I had in mind and repurpose items that already exist in my closet. For example, a shirt design that I sketched that can be made with something that I already own, but do not use.
- Shop from more "sustainable" stores. Whether it's investing in more quality pieces, up-cycling, or buying second hand, try to purchase from places that have a smaller carbon footprint.
- Look at the ingredients inside makeup products – avoid micro plastics and chemical based sunscreens. Micro plastics are bad for the ocean, because animals can consume them, and chemical sunscreens are not reef safe.
- Dedicate more time to developing my own business. Meet with Esther once a week to discuss how we will experiment with our prototypes on the other sides of the coast.
A punch list can be for an individual, family, community, company, or city. It is the list of the actions you or a group will undertake and accomplish over a predetermined span of time—one month, one year, five years, or more. You can make different lists for different time periods—this week and this year for example.
