Skip the Plastic recognizes Kristian Fontenot and Wyatt Hooks 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 April Bag Heroes are Kristian Fontenot and Wyatt Hooks. In their own words: “We moved to Corpus Christi from Austin 5 years ago. As undergraduate college students, we tend to visit the grocery store and farmers’ markets quite a bit. Being accustomed to the bag ban in Austin, we were shocked to see plastic bags again.

However, since reusable bags had become a part of our regular routine, we kept on using them. Once you have incorporated leaving them in your car or home, they are easy to use and maintain.

Plastic shopping bags are a danger to our environment. It is important for us that we make a change to help preserve our local environment and wildlife.”

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.
