1.06 | Sustaining science through green initiatives
Science can be sustainable. For example, the University of Washington—located near temperate rainforests—is home to top laboratories that are not only generating new discoveries but also lots of trash. UW's Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability program encourages the use of energy-saving, waste-reducing reagents that are shipped and stored at room temperature, such as EcoDry products. Reducing fuel consumption and landfill waste: That's Good Science!
