Reactions of a New Idea

From the time I went to buy books for the class, I began to wonder what garbage had to do with Statistics. After the first day of class, it made sense how plastic bags tie into the class. Honestly, my family has never been concern with recycling, and needless to say, I do not practice recycling habits. I am an open minded person so the idea of recycling is definitely something I can began to appreciate. Looking at my own life, it is easy to see how much trash I produce as an individual. On that point, I am exited for what is ahead during the semester by using Statistics in a real life situation, learning about recycling, and help educate our community and myself on preserving out planet.

I had the same thoughts as Jaime about the books for this class too. I started recycling because my husband always did it. So for the most part our family recycles. My husband always comments that we have more recycling than anyone else on our block. The thing that this book has made me think about it is how often I don't recycle something that could be recycled because it's not convenient for me at that moment, but it is trash that ends up going to a landfill unnecessarily.
