Lab Managers Meeting 6/7/2012
Gail and I (Brandon Hartman) attended the lab managers meeting this past Thursday to showcase our energy and water savings programs as well as inform them about our Living Green Labs assessments. Approximately 8 lab managers were on site, and were very receptive to hearing about Living Green at UCSF and what we are up to. They were very excited about the refrigerator rebate program and informed us that there is quite a bit of ancient equipment used in the labs and similar programs would be a great idea. They were also interested in the pipette washing racks however most labs are now using disposable pipettes; so we plan to seek out the pipette washing systems on campus and offer pipette washing racks to them, as well as researching recyclable pipettes and adequate systems to make sure all non-biohazard pipettes are properly recycled. Overall the meeting was a great success and we look forward to working closely with the lab managers in the future to further our positive impact on UCSF.
