Abstract: Students clean their garments to eliminate dirt and to prevent them from smelling. Although often ignored, every load of washing and drying contributes to environmental consequence on tertiary campuses with extensive use of water, energy, detergents, and chemicals. The study thus investigated the existing patterns of student laundry application and the environmental implications of these practices. The sample used for this study were tertiary students in Ghana. Convenience sampling was used to select 150 students and administered with questionnaires. The major findings of the study demonstrate that one of the main problems with laundry as it stands is the lack of education about the environmental impacts of doing laundry. Students do not connect doing laundry with the number of resources necessary to make their clothes clean. This is especially true when considering detergents and the number of students who haphazardly pour detergent when cleaning their clothes.
