Environmental Sustainability Progress so far at Twist Bioscience

Waste Miniaturization

By miniaturizing DNA synthesis, chemical waste is significantly reduced. Per run we synthesize 10,000x more oligos and produce 1000x less chemical waste per oligo.

Lab Recycling

Since the end of 2018, Twist has recycled >1500 lbs of lab gloves. Our sustainability partner turns them into outdoor planters and lawn furniture.

Eco Packaging

We adopted our own shipping packaging made from 37% recycled material, designed specifically to minimize wasted space in every parcel. Where possible we have replaced plastic for cardboard.
