Last fall I published my first first-authored paper in a scientific journal, yay! For scientists, this is a big milestone in our career. I worked on this project for the first 3 years of my PhD, while I was a PhD student at Texas A&M. I am now a PhD Candidate at the University of Texas at El Paso.
I am passionate about the work I do, and believe it is important for scientists to share their work broadly. So, I’ve created a “Fact sheet” of my paper to share with you (inspired by sarahmyhre.com).
As you read through this, please keep in mind that we CAN all make a difference to reduce the amount of human-generated trash that ends up in the environment.
Simple, easy ways to reduce our impact include:
- Refuse single-use plastics, opt for reusable canvas shopping bags and reusable mesh produce bags (all machine washable!)
- Switch out your single-use plastic bottles for a reusable water bottle. They come in all colors, shapes, sizes and some are even insulated to keep your water cold all day!
- Say no to plastic straws, if you really love straws, opt for reusable and dishwasher safe stainless steel ones!
WE can all have a positive impact!
