1. Pack Light
The weight and amount of luggage you pack increases the weight of the plane and the fuel it will burn, which in turn impacts the amount of CO2 emitted.
Packing a smaller bag lowers emissions and makes your life easier when carrying it around.
Less is more when packing for Hajj and Umrah. Many pilgrims take far too many things, which they bring back unused. Try rolling your clothes to create more space.
You’ll probably be bringing back gifts for your friends and family, so make sure there's enough room for the return trip.
Remember, part of going to perform Hajj and Umrah is letting go of things. So use this opportunity to declutter your belongings and your life!
