Green Labs

There are numerous ways that laboratory workers can reduce the impact that our laboratories have on the environment. All laboratory workers are asked to consider pollution prevention opportunities for all of their operations. This includes reducing or eliminating chemical use and chemical waste production; substituting less hazardous materials; water and/or electricity conservation; and any other means of reducing environmental impact.
