    The audio pin was not visible long enough to read it.

    Enjoyed the Green Chemistry Webinar and Alnne Wallin’s presentation of the information. There are so many ways each person can be greener, but I am glad to have learned how a large company like Dow has been greener and that Dow and other companies are collaborating to help solve the world’s problems in terms of energy, materials, global warming, water, health and nutrition, housing and transportation.
