UNCG Office of Sustainability

Home » Action



Every day you can take simple steps toward making UNCG a sustainable campus.  It is our hope that your experience and involvement in helping the University become carbon neutral will be integrated in your life, and your example will be carried off campus when after your time at UNCG comes to an end.

  • Turn off lights when leaving any unoccupied room — including public bathrooms
  • Unplug chargers and appliances when not using them
  • Set your computer’s default settings to hibernate or sleep — not a screen saver
  • Take shorter showers
  • Do not buy bottled water – opt for a reusable bottle
  • Make the most of public transportation, bike lanes, and your own feet
  • Use a blanket instead of space heater
  • Turn off your over head light or lamp, and use a natural light
  • Reduce the amount of meat and dairy in your diet
