Helping small labs build pathways to sustainability.
The Lab Project (TLP) is a non-profit
organization with a mission to make laboratory
sustainability more accessible. Founded to
provide pro bono consulting services to small,
growing laboratories in the life sciences,
biotechnology, and pharmaceutical industries,
we faciliate access to financial and advising
resources that are specifically dedicated to
achieving sustainable research operations.
Our small but mighty team has led the
development of laboratory efficiency
programs in the utility industry, and is a part of
local and national organizations dedicated to
green laboratory practices. We leverage our
expertise, trusted partnerships, and long-held
professional relationships to realize a
sustainability plan that empowers your lab.

Recycling and waste reduction
