“Green Chemistry” is the universally accepted term to describe the movement towards more environmentally acceptable chemical processes and products. It encompasses education, research, and commercial application across the entire supply chain for chemicals. Green Chemistry can be achieved by applying environmentally friendly technologies – some old and some new. Our living standard rose after the industrial revolution. It developed many products that facilitate life, to extend human life. Industrial revolution has brought increased production with it. Increased production but also as a source (raw material) made to be consumed rapidly. However, no one; neither consumers nor scientists, nor some toxic industrial companies could think that thousands tons of waste contaminate air, water and soil. Only the success of the work done was measured in the linear structure of the economy without looking at the heritages it has left. Soon, serious environmental problems and industry associations, waste affecting the ecosystem could not ignore more. Waste reduction, reuse and recycling green movement started with my community’s increasing awareness of nature conservation, sustainability has spread in waves with the slogan to become one of the 20th century. For a continually growing population and restricted resources in a sustainable future in a world where the idea of the idea of development in the 21st century is one of the biggest opinions of green chemistry. It is significant to understand the principles of green chemistry and green chemistry, to leave a livable world for future generations and to apply.
