Roving Reporter | "Skip the Plastic Recognizes TAMU-CC Islander Green Team Members as ‘Bag Heroes’"

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 February Bag Heroes are TAMU-CC’s Islander Green Team. Students on the team work to spread environmental awareness in our community and to promote opportunities for other students to become engaged about environmental conservation while striving for social and ecological justice. Projects they have championed on campus include recycling, solar and wind energy generation, hydration stations for reusable water bottles, the Islander Green Community Garden and campus composting program, LED lighting and a Solar Power-Dok that generates and stores electricity for use day or night.

Islander Green Team members bring their own reusable bags when heading to the store. If asked why, they’ll answer, “We choose to skip the plastic because....plastic is unsustainable.”
