Green Labs + coffee = win

Lab workers put in long hours in the search for data and answers, so when the Green Laboratory Certification program wanted to reward participants, coffee was a natural choice.

The Green Labs program has been delivering responsibly-grown and locally-roasted coffee from UW Husky Grind to all the labs that participated in the program in 2014 to recognize and thank them for the extra effort they've put into making their labs green.

A Day in the Life of a Green Labs Consultant

By Celia Gurney

My alarm goes off at 7:30 a.m. I hit snooze and roll over, eager to return to an exciting dream about IHOP. But just as I’m about to order a side of pancakes with my Smokehouse Combo, I remember something that jerks me awake. I sit bolt upright. There’s no time to waste. I’m about to start another day of work as a consultant for the Green Laboratory Program.
