Halloween is all about black and orange, but the advocates for environmentally sensitive lab practices at the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC wanted to get their colleagues thinking green this year.

The Green Team, the folks behind the Green Labs Program at the research institute, hosted a Go Green for Halloween event on Oct. 26 to promote the Green Labs program, explain campus recycling options, and allow Corning Products and Fisher Scientific representatives to display their green laboratory products.

The two companies also provided pizza and drinks while the Green Team staffed information tables and stations for games and making origami bats and ghosts. The team also highlighted the program's plans a forthcoming internal green lab certification.
