Recommendations

Here are some tips and recommendations you may want to follow in order to keep a more efficient and sustainable working procedure:

  • Where appropriate, reusable glassware rather than single use plastic is a more environmentally sound choice.
  • Communicate with your apparatus supply division to recycle tip boxes and rack your own tips and other consumables.
  • Have your lab evaluated for energy efficiency to assess where improvements can be made.
  • Get involved in sustainability initiatives and applicable departments at your institution. Don’t have sustainability initiatives at your institution? Perhaps propose or lead the creation of one!

Share

Sharing lab space and equipment is an easy way to reduce energy consumption and equipment costs while making some new friends.

Recycle

While your lab will have safe methods to dispose of different types of waste, alternative sustainable waste disposal companies may be available in your area to recycle and reuse different types of waste. It is worth researching within your local area for such companies.
