Seek ways to minimize chemical use. For example, consider microchemistry.
Strategies for minimizing chemical use can be found below. One of the most commonly used strategies is microchemistry, which involves carrying out chemical reactions and other laboratory procedures on a smaller scale. In microscale chemistry the amounts of materials used are reduced to 25 to 100 mg for solids (from 10 to 50g) and 100 to 200 μL for liquids (from 100 to 500mL). These techniques save money because they require less material and result in less waste.
