April Resource - Green Chemistry Labs:
Chemistry laboratories, including teaching labs, are resource-intensive both in electricity consumption from ventilation and in hazardous waste generated.
MyGreenLab is a group promoting sustainable science of all kinds and recently released a Guide to Green Chemistry Experiments for Undergraduate Organic Chemistry Labs. If you are or you know an O-chem instructor, please send this their way to help them reduce their waste and use new alternative chemicals!
They also have resources for reducing electricity use with fume hood best practices and a freezer challenge.
Did you know you could recycle nitrile gloves and pipette tips? See their tips for managing lab waste responsibly!
Our Angled Petri Dish Holders are now available on Amazon! This makes it a lot easier for universities and other institutions to order through their normal channels. Let your lab manager or PI know if you want to improve your cell culture ergonomics and stop spilling media all over your fume hood!
Just for fun:
For everyone out there who has to deal with "experts" on the internet...
