Skip the Plastic recognizes Jeanne Klein as Cleanup Hero
CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS – In January of this year, the Skip the Plastic project of the
Surfrider Foundation – Texas Coastal Bend Chapter switched from recognizing
community members and businesses that have made the shift to reusable
shopping bags to those who go out of their way to clean up their local park,
neighborhood, or their favorite stretch of beach.
Our Cleanup Hero in July is Jeanne Klein of Port Aransas, Texas. We met up with
Jeanne at Mustang Island State Park where she was conducting a clean with her
friends. Jeanne shared with us that she has been coming to Port Aransas since
she was a child, and she remembers when the beaches were free of trash. She
said she feels like it is the least she can do to help keep our community free of
We recognize Jeanne for her cleanup efforts and for making our coastal
community a better place to live. She has inspired us to keep cleaning up and
we hope she inspires you to do the same!
