Roving Reporter | Skip The Plastic Recognizes Paulette Kluge as November ‘Bag Hero’
For the month of November, our Bag Hero is Paulette Kluge. As CEO of the Corpus Christi Convention & Visitors Bureau, Paulette knows how important it is to keep our city looking beautiful for both visitors and our locals.
“I love collecting and using reusable bags,” she said. “Last year for Christmas I used the reusable holiday themed H-E-B bags to “wrap” presents for my friends and family, eliminating boxes and paper that would be thrown away. I invited them all to start collecting and using their bags.”
Paulette invites everyone to a challenge: “Imagine all the people you know ... imagine all the plastic bags they use in a year and then imagine the gigantic pile of plastic we are stuffing into the ground of our beautiful city.”
She hopes we will all start collecting and using reusable bags and that we invite friends and family to play. It is time to make it a personal goal to reduce, reuse and recycle.
It is easy! It is fun! Skip the plastic!
