In attempt to a mother earth less toxic and more sustainable we must use the 12 principles of the Green Chemistry, especially those who are the most effective and those who are the key to achieve this goal. Principles like consuming less energy, atom economy, are some of those who are important to us and our mother earth preventing a polluted world.
Green chemistry could help the mother Earth being more sustainable and less toxic exhorting the humanity to consume less energy and start to create biodegradable things so the damage to the Earth will be less and we could live without any worries.
The principles of green chemistry help to make daily used processes sustainable for the environment. The use of catalyst in chemical processes can help low the time of reaction and consume less energy to achieve the desire product.
The principles of green chemistry help us minimize the use of solvents when making a synthesis. They are very useful because many of the solvents are toxic to our planet. If we have one universal solvent for allt the reactions we can make the Earth more green.

Green chemistry can help nature be less toxic by creating biodegradable products and this will help reduce the production of waste that non-biodegradable products make.
Chemistry students can help the world to be a less toxic by educating people about the twelve principles of Green Chemistry so that more people are aware of the damage and impact we have on nature and more people can do something about it; even if the are not chemists.
With the green chemistry principle we can awareness to the chemists for together with the industry and academy, we can achieve and create chemical substances and process environmental friendly.
You ALL have come up with so many cool points of views and ideas! Thanks to you all for being green chemistry champions!. Reducing toxicity and sustainability are key themes. Would you re-word the current 12 principles?, shorten them to a top 3 green chem principles? Keep the ideas coming. Kindest regards to you all! David. ACS GCI
If I were to shorten the 12 principles into 3 top Green Chemistry principles it would be: Prevention, Efficiency and Security.
Many reactions are useful to achieve the many products we desire, however many of these reactions end up in a high level of waste products. Which makes my point to be; the synthesis of reactions with low waste product is one of our main goals in order to economize atoms in the universe.
