Green Chemistry Video Series

We started this video series to explain each of the 12 Principles of Green Chemistry. These 12 principles are the underlying concepts of green chemistry, so they’re a great introduction to the topic. Each video below explains one of the principles, using analogies or examples to show why that principle is important. We’ve also written a blog post to accompany each video, which are also listed below.

The purpose of these videos is to not only teach chemists how to make green decisions, but also to provide students, teachers, and the general public with the knowledge of what green chemistry is all about. We would love it if you shared these videos widely with anyone who’s interested in how sustainability overlaps with innovation!

Here’s the list of the videos! You can also find them all on our YouTube channel: GreenChemUofT. Please be patient as we finish the rest of our video series. This list will be updated as new videos come out. Let us know what you think!
