NIH Green Labs Fair 2018
Come join your colleagues for the upcoming NIH Green Labs Fair on September 12, 2018. The Green Labs Fair features a variety of
information on green products, green practices and environmental initiatives
that you can use to make your lab “green”. Learn about green products directly
from their vendors, discover green practices from the lab staff that actually
use them, and inquire about NIH initiatives with the staff that run them! All employees, contractors and visitors are invited.
Date & Time: Wednesday, September 12 from 12 – 2pm
Location: Building 10 South Lobby
Description: View posters and exhibits on green success stories from NIH. Learn about these green lab practices so you can use them in your own lab! Presentations are expected from the NIDCD, NIDDK, and ORF/ORS Green Teams. Also, discover the environmental programs that help keep NIH safe and promote sustainability! A few of the potential topics include identifying recyclable items, eliminating unnecessary uses of mercury,
preventing unauthorized disposal of chemicals to the sanitary sewer, the NIH
Green Lab Program, the NIH Free Stuff Program and many more!
The Green Labs Fair also features a green products show with over 20 vendors! Read the Green Products Brochure to learn about some of the products that will be present at this year's fair!
