Our November Bag Hero

Our November Bag Hero is Dr. Pamela Plotkin, Director of the Texas Sea Grant Program. The program is a collaboration of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the State of Texas and universities across the state, and its mission is to improve the understanding, wise use and stewardship of Texas coastal and marine resources.

Dr. Plotkin has worked for decades to improve our understanding of sea turtles and help protect them throughout the world’s oceans. She has also studied pollution and its impact on marine animals.

She states, “There’s a trash pile in the ocean bigger than Texas and plastic bags are a part of this mess. By making small changes in our daily habits, like using only cloth bags when we shop, we can reduce our individual plastic footprint and together we can make a difference for the future our blue planet.”
