Pink Goes Green Continues to Inspire and Enrich

With spring around the corner and Earth Day coming up on April 22, we are celebrating Pink Goes Green's sixth anniversary this year. Since its inception in 2008, 2,018 people have joined Pink Goes Green, taking the green pledge to preserve, conserve and protect the environment we call the Earth. Pink Goes Green has won awards from the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and the Fraternity Communications Association and National Interfraternity Foundation.

Delta Zeta's Pink Goes Green - the first environmental initiative of its kind in the Greek world - makes our environment considerably greener. And Pink Goes Green is about more than just colors.

The movement aims to work at a grassroots level to improve the environment, educate the public on how they can get involved and empower people with the knowledge that just one individual can make a positive change in our environment.

The women of Delta Zeta have always been citizens who care about and are involved in their communities. It is a value that has been passed down from our Founders and is still important today as evidenced from many philanthropic and charitable programs that the Sorority supports.

In addition, many Delta Zeta members are leaders on their campuses, in their communities and in their countries. The combination of strong values, leadership capability and passion make the women of Delta Zeta the perfect community to not only impact the environment, but to also inspire others to follow in their footsteps.

Through Pink Goes Green, Delta Zeta encourages members and friends to lead and perform community service-related projects to improve the environment and educate those around them about how they can do the same. These projects can be done on a local, statewide or national basis to achieve environmental awareness and change.

To get inspired and get some great ideas to jumpstart your Pink Goes Green initiative, just look at what some of our Delta Zeta members and chapters are doing below. And let us know what you are doing in your home, school, community or the world to spread environmental awareness and care for the Earth at PGG@dzshq.com.
