Ryan Chiasson plays as a defenseman for the Corpus Christi Ice Rays. Originally from Ontario, Canada, Ryan has been enjoying Corpus Christi’s warm weather. When not playing or practicing, he likes to fish and relax at our local beaches.
When asked why he prefers reusable bags, Ryan said, “Plastic bags end up in the landfill and oceans. Reusable bags are clearly better for the environment.”
We would also like to recognize Target for their efforts to reduce waste and help keep our city clean. As a part of their Corporate Responsibility program, Target offers a 5-cent discount to their customers for every reusable bag they use and gives away free reusable bags on Earth Day. So far, Target’s nationwide customers have used 80 million reusable bags instead of paper or plastic ones. We think that’s a smart and sustainable way to do business.
