Skip the Plastic recognizes Kristin Evans as our February 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 February Bag Hero is Kristin Evans, who works as the Education Coordinator at the University of Texas Marine Science Institute and
Mission-Aransas National Estuarine Research Reserve in Port Aransas. We happened to catch her while she was loading her groceries into her car at Sprouts.

Reusable bags are nothing new to Kristin: “I don’t go anywhere without my reusable bags! I’m happy to say I picked up the habit many years ago, and am thankful I can haul all my groceries (and other goodies) without the extra plastic.”

Reducing our consumption of disposable plastics is paramount to the health of the Gulf and local bays, and reusable bags are a great place to start.
