While searching on the Internet for a new credit card that is socially conscious and not issued by Citibank, Chase, or some other mega corporation, I stumbled across this website. It has some interesting short articles on many topics that we've discussed on the blog such as biodiesel and composting. Here is the link if you're interested: http://coopamerica.org/pubs/realmoney/articles/
This blog initially began as a class project to 1) raise public awareness on the consumption of plastic bags; 2) apply students' statistical training and knowledge to a real-world issue in our community; and 3) instill a sense of personal responsibility that inspires behavioral, environmental, and economic changes.
The goal to conserve plastic bags has since evolved to include a multitude of environmental issues. Consequently, this blog largely chronicles a college professor's personal and professional journey to educate herself and others to live, work, and play in a sustainable fashion.
