We Mean Green

We Mean Green

At the University of North Texas, we like to have fun with our "Mean Green" nickname. With a number of sustainability projects campuswide, "We Mean Green" at UNT — every day, and certainly on Earth Day. The research underway at UNT tells the same story — we are serious about our earth. Watch how researchers in our BioDiscovery Institute are turning biomass into bio-based consumer goods.
