When asked why he likes reusable bags, he says, “Our beaches and sand dunes are valuable assets and are home for numerous animal species. I bring my own reusable bags when shopping because I am trying to create an awareness for others that our environment and the animals that live in it depend on us to protect them. Hopefully the proposed plastic bag ban on North Padre Island will become a reality this November.”
