About Us

My Green Lab Background

Laboratories represent an enormous, untapped potential for sustainability. They discard over 12 billion pounds of plastic annually, and they consume 5-10 times more energy and water than office spaces. Worldwide, laboratories comprise an industry that is 3 times the size of the building products space and just over half the size of the automotive industry.

My Green Lab is a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing the environmental impact of laboratories by building a culture of sustainability through science and directly engaging scientists and the teams of people who support them. Our members and supporters range from small laboratories to some of the science community’s largest corporations and academic institutions. Run “for scientists, by scientists,” we develop standards, oversee their implementation, and inspire the many behavioral changes that are needed throughout the science community. In addition to motivating behavioral changes in and around the lab through easily and rapidly implementable tools with clear measurement and verification, we are also leading data-driven research into environmental health impacts and resource consumption.
