Sierra Club’s Dirty Room Contest!

Are you a slob? Do questionable odors emit from frustratingly untraceable areas in your living space? Have a sneaking suspicion that there may be an undiscovered species lurking beneath the filth in which you wallow?

No? Know someone who can answer “yes” to the above?

If you know someone who matches the above descriptions, then they could win a free green cleaning service (valued at $200) provided by the Sierra Club, as part of their 2dirty4college campaign. Yes, Sierra Club will actually be rewarding someone for living in a polluted environment.

All you have to do is submit a picture of the room to the Sierra Club’s website. Submissions due by December 6th!

Check out the video from our rally! Rather rally in the rain, than have dirty coal at Carolina.

Coal-Free UNC Rally Tomorrow 11:50am!

We will be having our Coal-Free UNC Rally tomorrow at 11:50am in Polk Place, located near the flagpole in the central part of Carolina’s campus. Hoping for a big turn-out. We’re fresh off an endorsement from recently elected mayor of Chapel Hill, Mark Kleinschmidt, so we’re pretty pumped.

People need to realize that the problem of coal usage is just as much a human rights issue, as an environmental one. Coal has polluted the local resources of many communities. People are forced to live in a toxic environment which causes their health to suffer as a result.

Hopefully, the rally will get the word out there and generate awareness.

Stop by if you’re in the area!
