#LABWASTEDAY

Help us raise awareness about the enormous amount of plastic waste generated in research laboratories EVERYDAY around the world and spark the debate on how waste can be reduced in the lab!

Every year we are organizing #LabWasteDay, on the 3rd Tuesday of September

How can you join?

  • Collect all your plastic waste generated in one day and take a picture of it

  • State the weight of the plastic waste generated, and the amount of waste that would be generated in a year (approximately 261 working days)

  • Post the picture on Twitter and other social media including #LabWasteDay and #SustainableScience #eLifeAmbassadors

  • Include ideas on how waste generation in the lab can be reduced

  • Follow the conversations!
