A Noteworthy Role of Green Chemistry in Routine Life

Varsha Deshraj


Green chemistry is the innovative and rapid emerging branch of chemistry. The commencement of Green Chemistry is considered as a response to the need to reduce the damage of the environment by man - made materials and the processes used to produce them. Green chemistry could include anything from reducing waste to even disposing of waste in the correct manner. All chemical wastes should be disposed of in the best possible manner without causing any damage to the environment and living beings. This article presents selected examples of implementation of green chemistry principles in our routine life.

Keywords: environment, green chemistry, sustainability
