Exclamation Get eco-friendly at lab!! Re-use!



Hello all!
Pipette tips generate a lot of plastic waste in a laboratory. Sometimes I feel that I can avoid a lot of waste generation if I reuse the tips that are generally used for handling simple (non toxic) chemicals like water, solutions, reagents, microbiological media, etc.
Does anybody practice this eco-friendly habit in his/her lab? I am really looking up for a protocol to wash and reuse the tips!
Share your idea
C'mon, lets do our bit for the environment.
