On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I spend half of the day working from home, which means generating much less waste because I'm not using disposable products as often. So far, I've added two paper towels to the bag this afternoon. And that's it. Honestly, the real challenge for me has been trying to write an interesting blog about this experience!!
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.
