Roving Reporter | Skip the Plastic - March 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 March Bag Hero is Allison Foster, Director of the International Study Center at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. When she, her mother, Jacqueline Wormser, and her son, Miguel, head to the store, they always bring their reusable bags. Allison explains, “When I was a child, my mother used to bring reusable bags all the time when she went shopping. This was long before it became a common practice, and some people probably thought it was a little strange, but it set a great example for me. Now we’re happy to have passed this tradition on to my son and to see his enthusiasm for helping to keep our city and our beaches beautiful and to protect the natural environment.” For more information visit or call 361-765- 4445.
