UNC Sustainable Bears: Tip of the Week

Many printers, phone and MP3 chargers, as well as appliances with remote controls like TVs and audio equipment, use energy even when not in use. Plug devices into a surge protector or smart power strip that you can turn off easily to be energy savvy. Remember to visit UNC's People.Power.Planet site to learn more ways to save.
