Roving Reporter | Skip the Plastic recognizes David Pierce as ‘Bag Hero’

The Skip the Plastic project of the Texas Coastal Bend Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation (TXCBC) recognizes community members and businesses that set a positive example by making the shift to reusable shopping bags or other alternatives to single-use plastic bags.   Our August Bag Hero is North Padre Island resident David Pierce. David spends a lot of time working to restore damaged sand dunes and to protect areas populated by sensitive animals and birds like piping plovers.

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.”

Since its inception in 1984, the Surfrider Foundation has evolved into one of the largest non-profit grassroots organizations dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s oceans, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network.
