Delta Zetas Everywhere Support Pink Goes Green
Since Delta Zeta launched Pink Goes Green in 2008, our chapters and
members embraced the commitment to preserve the environment. We empower
you with the knowledge that just one person can truly do more to protect
the environment and preserve the planet.
