Skip the Plastic Recognizes Janna Shoe as our September Bag Hero

CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS – The Skip the Plastic project of the Surfrider Foundation – Texas Coastal Bend Chapter recognizes community members and businesses that set a positive example by making the shift to reusable shopping bags or other alternatives to single-use plastic bags.

Our September Bag Hero is Janna Shoe. Janna shared with us that, “When the reusable bags first came, I purchased them to reduce my own plastic bag use. Since then, I have purchased many more and received free ones too. My favorite one is my Bevo bag fan gift from a UT football game. I use it for grocery trips, outdoor events, or just about anything. I would encourage everyone to Skip the Plastic, so we do not continue to see plastic bags on our beaches, tumbling down a street, or stuck in between tree limbs. I knew back in the 80s plastic bags may be convenient, but they’re a threat to our environment.”

During the current COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to remember that it is still safe to use reusable shopping bags. Just be sure to wash and disinfect them along with everything else you touch frequently.

We would like to thank Janna and everyone who is taking responsibility to reduce plastic pollution on land and in our oceans by skipping the plastic. Your efforts are making a difference!
