Thrift Shop
Resell and donate items you don't want or need anymore, and buy ones from thrift stores that are "new" to you! Just because something is at a thrift store doesn't mean it can't be put to good use; and significantly lower prices don't hurt either.

Cut Down on Meat Consumption
Reducing or eliminating meat from your diet is arguably one of the best ways to practice sustainability. In order to raise livestock, water, foodstuffs, and land is used by animals as opposed to being used or consumed directly by humans. Beef especially has a huge carbon footprint per pound of meat produced. Explore some vegetarian recipes!
