This year’s Campus Sustainability Day centered on a new online pledge promoting green life.
Fourteen tables were set up across campus Wednesday by various sponsors including the Renewable Energy Special Projects Committee (RESPC), the Sustainability Office, Carolina Dining Services, HOPE Gardens, FLO Food and the Sierra Student Coalition.
Students who stopped by the tables were asked to pledge to lead a more sustainable lifestyle.
“The purpose of the pledge is to raise awareness and help the University advance sustainability initiatives both in and out of the workplace,” said Erin Hiatt, RESPC co-chairwoman.
After completing the pledge, students received an e-mail with a location where they could pick up Nalgene water bottles as a reward.
