  • Very useful information
  • Nothing significant
I was pleasantly surprised to discover the interesting GEMs site housed just down the road from me. Located at the University of Oregon, GEMs focuses on teaching the subject of chemistry as a green subject, meaning that all efforts are made to reduce or eliminate the use of materials that are hazardous to human health and the environment.
