January Bag Heroes are New to Town

Our January Bag Heroes are Alexa Obregon and Todd Jarrell, who recently moved to Corpus Christi from Austin. Like many people, “We moved here because we wanted to be close to the beach. When friends ask us what it’s like, the beach is one of the first things we tell them about.”

After being accustomed to Austin’s bag ban, though, the number of bags in fields and trees, and along shorelines throughout Corpus Christi surprised and saddened them. “A city this close to such wonderful natural resources like the bays, beaches and Gulf of Mexico needs to work to protect them.”

Not ones to wait for government to lead the way, Todd and Alexa are being proactive, “Bringing reusable shopping bags to the store is one small thing that we can do to help.”
