#GreenGoals: It's Not Too Late for Three Zeros New Year's Resolutions

We all have a role to play in achieving UNC’s goals of zero waste to landfills, zero net greenhouse gas emissions and zero net water use.

Never buy a plastic bottle again! With water bottle refill stations all over campus, it’s easy to give up disposable plastic bottles.

Eliminate phantom power! Unplug the charger for your cell phone, laptop or iPad after your devices are fully charged, or use power strips to turn off all your appliances at once.

Maintain that car! Take your car in for regular servicing. The oil, chemicals, antifreeze, coolant and other hazardous fluids that your car leaks will eventually make their way to rivers and lakes, contaminating drinking water.
