5. Visit op shops and markets instead of buying new clothes from the mall.

The fashion industry is the third-most polluting industry in the world. Buying recycled, second-hand clothing saves it from going into landfill.


14. Don't ask for receipts unless you actually need them.

@sabinaly / Via

Thermal paper receipts (i.e. the shiny ones where the text fades away in time) are coated with chemicals that don't belong in the recycling bin.

15. Wash your clothes in cold water and avoid using the clothes dryer.

Washing in cold water uses way less energy than washing in hot water. Also, always try to do full loads of laundry only.
