Happy Earth Day from Allele Biotech

It is Earth Day today and Allele Biotech wants to contribute to this important occasion by reminding us all of the things we can do as bench biologists to save our planet everyday.

The first and easiest thing everyone can do is to turn off lights, lab equipment, and office electronics at the end of the day or when not in use. Leaving a computer on overnight to avoid the painful two minute booting in the morning can cost up to $80 extra dollars in energy per computer per year! We are all guilty of squandering our energy and this is the cheapest and easiest way to significantly cut waste. Additionally, Allele can help cut electrical energy costs in your lab by supplying our compact, low energy, low cost laboratory equipment.

Second, if you work in a San Diego laboratory you can help the environment by purchasing laboratory supplies from a local company like Allele Biotech! Enable Green Thinking in your laboratory by purchasing locally and reducing greenhouse gasses and fuel use that would otherwise be generated from ordering from distant companies. Allele Biotech has 1000’s of products to choose from at low costs.

Third way to better our Earth (Allele’s Favorite) is recycling. We always reuse what we can and recycle what we cannot. It has been our longtime policy to collect boxes from other companies for recycling or repackaging. If you are a San Diego company that has extra Styrofoam boxes we will gladly pick them up and even pay you cash to take them off your hands!

Fourth, and very important, is to eliminate biowaste. As bench biologists, we have the power to do this by discerning what we throw away in the lab trash, especially those labeled as biowaste, radioactive waste, or chemical waste. It is so easy to throw the gloves boxes, plastic drinking bottles, or packaging materials in with all the culture tubes or chemicals when you are busy. However, taking the time to put these trash items into their correct receptacles is invaluable and imperative for the preservation of our Earth.

Fifth and last, if you worked on projects related to “green energy” as Obama called for today, congratulations, you are already making a difference to our environment. Get that algae to churn out some biofuel, quick!

Have all our light bulbs changed to new energy-saving types, including those in the restroom and o the chemical lab tall ceiling! A free gift from the fed gov program.
