0 Roving Reporter | "Skip The Plastic recognizes Ron and Julie Bays as ‘Bag Heroes’"

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.

We met our October Bag Heroes, Ron and Julie Bays, as they walked to their car after buying groceries at the H-E-B in Flour Bluff. Their reasons for bringing their own reusable shopping bags are simple and concise, “They look nice and you can pack them full without breaking like the plastic ones do. That means you can carry a lot more groceries in fewer bags.” The Bays live on North Padre Island and enjoy the laidback coastal lifestyle. While their reasons for using reusable bags stem mostly from convenience, it also means that fewer disposable ones can end up littering the Island’s dunes and beaches.

Clean, scenic beaches, not shorelines littered with plastic trash, are what draw people to the Island. We applaud the Bays and all others who have made the shift to a better way of bagging their purchases.
