0 Roving Reporter | Skip The Plastic Recognizes Paulette Kluge as November ‘Bag Hero’

The Bag Hero Program is a campaign to educate and encourage the use of reusable shopping bags in the Coastal Bend. We recognize community members who set a positive example by bringing reusable bags when shopping for groceries or other goods.

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!

Previous Bag Heroes include WWN Rockport, Joan & Scott Holt, A.P. “Freddy” Ramirez, Jace Tunnell, Dr. Sylvia Earle, Mary Beth Maxwell, Rae Mooney, Jean Payne, Weldon Lucas, Shelia Rogers, Barbi Leo, Stephanie Martinez, Aislynn Campbell, the team at the Texas Sealife Center, Casey Lain, Jennifer Reid, Daniela Sanchez, Jeff Francis, Lisa James, John Keller, Mayor Nelda Martinez, Ryan Chiasson, Tony Amos and former Mayor Joe Adame.
