Unplug electronics during Winter Break to help UNT be green

Dec. 9, 2019

Dear UNT students, faculty and staff,

Environmentally responsible actions are important to UNT. That's why we're asking you to partner with us this Winter Break on a simple initiative that will help the university conserve energy and energy resources.

Before you leave for the break, we ask that you unplug electronics, as they use electricity even when they are turned off; TVs, computers, electronics chargers, coffee makers and video game consoles are common "energy vampires."

The simple act of unplugging electronic devices takes minutes, is fiscally responsible, helps conserve energy and has a positive impact on our environment.
