The University of Georgia Green Labs program is committed to making UGA research labs more sustainable and efficient by reducing resource use, decreasing waste, and implementing best practices and technologies. Research laboratories have a substantial environmental footprint, using up to 10 times the resources of a classroom or office, and generating an estimated 25 times the waste. Researchers can reduce their environmental and social impact by embracing Green Labs initiatives. In addition to improving research processes, participants also benefit from prolonging the life of research equipment, better protecting research samples, and experiencing advantages in funding their research. This program was created by scientists for scientists to improve upon our research standards at UGA. https://Greenlabs.uga.edu
Upcoming quarterly meeting
Thursday, November 18, 2021 at 8:00 AM (America Recycles Week)- Community
260 N Jackson St, Athens, GA 30601
Community is a boutique for sustainable fashion and locally made products. Its clothing label Community Service is created by redesigning vintage clothing into contemporary fashion, thereby extending the life span of quality garments and keeping them out of the landfill. The sewing area is an active part of the retail space to break down the wall between the consumer and the maker to invite curiosity and dialogue about the process of how our clothes are being made and who makes them. Community also offers alteration and repair services, and teaches sewing classes designed to show Athenians how to make, alter, and care for their own wardrobe.
