Whew!!! I can't believe that BagFest is over already!!! The day flew by! Overall I have to say that I was quite impressed with how smoothly things seemed to go. I was also really impressed with how many Walmart volunteers there were helping out! They all rock!!!
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.
