The apparel industry accounts for 10 percent of carbon emissions. Try shopping at secondhand clothing stores like Goodwill or buying second- hand clothing online at thredup.com.

An example of a way that students can reduce carbon emissions is by submitting projects and homework online, and taking notes digitally instead of on paper whenever possible.

Rewear your clothes. If you wash your clothes once a week, that could total to about 275 pounds of carbon dioxide a year.

Finally, use reusable bags and cups instead of paper or plastic ones.
