The Rise of Sustainable Science  

The last 25 years have brought incredible growth in both science and sustainability. As we move towards a circular economy, they have converged to produce advancements such as the 12 Principles of Green Chemistry and implementation of more environmentally-friendly lab practices. In this Green Chemistry ASAP article, Roger Sheldon elegantly reviews life-cycle assessment, waste minimization, catalysis, and solvent alternatives in the shift away from fossil-based resources in modern laboratories.

Society for Neuroscience 2016

The SfN conference took place November 13-16 in San Diego, California. My Green Lab had nearly 2,000 people test their knowledge on lab sustainability and pledge to decrease the environmental impact of their research. If you missed us or weren't able to make the conference, you can still sign the My Green Lab pledge today! 

Help Us Make A Difference  

My Green Lab is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to building a culture of sustainability through science. Did you know labs consume as much as 2/3 of the energy used at large research institutions, and that 5.5 million tons of plastic waste is generated globally in bioscience labs every year? We want to change that! Here are even more reasons why you should consider supporting My Green Lab. Donate now!
