Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle
As professionals in the life sciences, it is our responsibility to reduce the impact of our activities on the environment.
With the passage of time, the scientific instrumentation of the laboratory has fallen into disuse due to different causes, whether due to the acquisition of new equipment, the appearance of more effective alternative techniques, breakdowns or changing of the research line, among others. The uncontrolled disposal of equipment can cause serious environmental damage due to the fact that some of the materials with which they are manufactured can be highly polluting. Therefore, the best solution is to apply the slogan of sustainability, also known as the 3Rs: Reduce,Reuse and Recycle, in this order of importance.
When you buy a second-hand machine from Galileo, as well as saving, you are committing to sustainability, but how?
When reconditioned equipment is Reused and a second life is given, all the materials included in it (plastics, metals, etc.) do not have to be manufactured again by industries that, in many cases, are very aggressive with the environment. ambient. Such is the case of the mining industry or petroleum products. Likewise, emissions to the atmosphere are saved due to the need to transport the equipment from the manufacturing point to the point of use. On the other hand, if a team has reached the end of its useful life, its pieces that are still in good condition can also be Recycled. In all these ways the environmental impact is Reduced and promotes sustainability.
Therefore, if you have equipment that you no longer use or need a team for your research Project, contact Galileo and contribute your bit to the sustainability of the planet!
