An emerging subfield within the science of nanotechnology is the green production of nanoparticles by the use of biological systems, particularly plant extracts. Due to the various features that it possesses, zinc oxide is of great relevance to a wide variety of sectors. These properties have been further improved by the manufacturing of this material at the nanoscale. Despite this, there has been a rise in concern over the influence that it has on the environment, which has resulted in the creation of manufacturing methods that are favorable to the environment. There has been a recent uptick in interest, as reported in the scientific literature, in producing metal and metal oxide nanoparticles by the use of biological methods. Because it is a less dangerous procedure than chemical and physical synthesis methods, which are currently employed in the industry to create these nanomaterials, this approach was given the name "green synthesis." The extraction of coffee leaves is used as a reducing agent to maintain the stability of the particle length. In terms of its medicinal potential, the results indicated that it had a significant antibacterial effect against the pathogenic kind of bacteria that developed on the wound. The current study focuses on the environmentally friendly manufacture of zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO NPs) as well as their application in the process of toxicity reduction. It is likely that the use of ZnO nanoparticles as antibacterial agents will be their most important use. Because of their increased surface area and decreased size, these particles are an excellent candidate for use as an antibacterial agent. This article provides an overview of the environmentally friendly production of ZnO nanoparticles as well as the antibacterial properties of these particles. In addition to this, the activity's mechanism was analysed as well. Also featured was the environmentally friendly production of ZnO nanoparticles from Azadirachta indica, Aloe vera, Murraya koenigii, and Anisochilus carnosus.
