Roving Reporter | Skip The Plastic Recognizes Gayly Opem as June ‘Bag Hero’
Our June Bag Hero, Gayly Opem, is a Rockport resident who leads Skip the Plastic in Rockport/Fulton.
She has a large collection of reusable bags in blue, green, red, turquoise, black and white stacked in the backseat of her car and jokes that she likes to color coordinate them with whatever she’s wearing that day. On a more serious note, she says: “I believe in the power of recognition and positive reinforcement of good behavior. While walking through a store's parking lot, I look for someone else carrying reusable bags. That person is usually a complete stranger, but I walk over and thank them for using reusable bags. Most look rather startled, but then give me a knowing smile when they see my own reusable bags slung over my arm. Try it sometime. You'll be surprised at the friends you make.”
