Environmental Science And Technology Announces Video Contest: How Chemistry Helps You Be Green

March 1, 2010

The American Chemical Society (ACS) peer-reviewed journal, Environmental Science & Technology (ES&T), recently announced its first video contest themed, “How Does Chemistry Help YOU Be Green?” to recognize the significant milestones occurring in the environmental field this year.

The year 2010 is a milestone for environmental awareness, marking the 40th anniversary of the first observance of Earth Day, the founding of the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency, passage of the Clean Air Act Extension of 1970 and implementation of the National Environmental Policy Act that have all helped to shape the way we think and the way we live our lives with respect to the environment.

ES&T would like to give contestants the chance to show the world how chemistry helps them be green. Video submissions should creatively highlight what people are doing in their own communities, school, workplace, etc., to be more green and illustrate how chemistry can help sustain both efforts and the world we live in. Contestants may submit a video on their own, or join with a research partner, a classmate, a professor, or even as a whole class or lab, but please be creative, have fun, and help the journal show the world how chemistry helps you, or can help us all to be green!

Contest details, rules, guidelines, and prizes can be found at http://pubs.acs.org/page/esthag/video/contest.html. The contest ends on March 30, 2010.

Winning videos will be announced on April 22, 2010, Earth Day, and will be featured on the Environmental Science & Technology website. Winners will be notified by e-mail.

  1. Well… that’s quiet interessting but to be honest i have a hard time figuring it… I’m wondering what others have to say….

  2. The following web link from the online site of “New Scientist” may give you some ideas to start with.
    The title of the article is titled “Better living through Green Chemistry.”
    Some of the examples using green chemistry explained in the article are
    from pharmaceuticals, clothing and electronics. Other examples include green decaffeinating of coffee, packaging from corn instead of plastics, cosmetics made from ingredients alternative to petroleum extracts, and using natural resins for household products.
