S.C. Resource Conservation Challenge:


 The S.C. Resource Conservation Challenge (Challenge) is about new and improved ways for state agencies, colleges/universities, local governments, schools and school districts to conserve natural resources, protect the environment – and perhaps save money in the process.

The Challenge, which is modeled after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (U.S. EPA) Resource Conservation Challenge (RCC) and customized for South Carolina, can be met in a variety of ways. Those ways include implementing and expanding initiatives on waste reduction, recycling, buying recycled and energy conservation as part of an overall sustainability program.

Each of us must accept and meet the Challenge. Each of us must have a resource conservation ethic. Each of us must operate more efficiently. Each of us must purchase more wisely. If each of us meets the Challenge, South Carolina will have a safer, cleaner environment.
