Sunway University’s Guide to Living Sustainably

Making sustainable choices may sound complicated and overwhelming but really, it's as simple as this guide seems to be. Some of these choices are things you may already unconsciously be pursuing in your lives. Find out more on how to make better choices for our planet and the people below!

Second-hand Shopping

Fast Fashion is one of the biggest contributors to carbon emissions in the world. Buy preloved clothes and create demand for slower fashion!  


Tip #1

  • Look out for material composition.  

Producing polyester releases double the amount of carbon than cotton.  

Cotton is also higher in quality, ensuring your clothes will last longer in your closet than in the landfill.
