Roving Reporter | "Skip the Plastic recognizes Jeff Wilson as ‘Bag Hero’" | November

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 November Bag Hero, Jeff Wilson, is passionate about the coast and hosting fun weekend beach cleanups near Fish Pass. Without any assistance from official cleanup groups, he gathers and inspires volunteers who give their time and pour their sweat into removing tons of trash off the beach. Most of that trash is made of plastic since it does not readily biodegrade, and single-use checkout bags are invariably in the mix.

When asked what motivates him, Jeff says, "We’re all just trying to take care of what we love, and it really drives the point home when you clean up an area and see everything that winds up out in nature. I really encourage people to just do what they can and don't wait around for someone else to make the world a beautiful place."
