Skip the Plastic recognizes AM Bookkeeping & Tax Professionals as Bag Heroes:
CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS – The Skip the Plastic project of the Texas Coastal Bend Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation (TXCBC) 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 August Bag Heroes are the employees of AM Bookkeeping & Tax Professionals. Looking for ways to become more sustainable, they have eliminated several kinds of disposable plastic and paper items that are common in many offices. They have moved away from individual-serve coffee and disposable cups to a coffee maker and mugs, made the switch to recycled file folders, substituted cloth hand towels for paper towels in the bathroom and kitchen, and use metal utensils and straws.
They have also gotten into the habit of using reusable shopping bags when getting supplies for the office. Naturally, this habit has carried over into their daily lives when they are off the clock. “Living on the water we have a firsthand view of the damage disposable plastic bags can have on our environment. Switching to reusable bags was a no-brainer. They’re easy to use, just keep them in your car and you’re ready whenever you head out to go shopping. They’re hassle free and very stylish!”
