As Mayor Nelda Martinez says, a new year and new era have begun in Corpus Christi. She encourages everyone to bring their bags when shopping to help keep our city clean. Make it your resolution for 2013 to do your part and “Bring Your Own Bag.” It’s easy to do once you get in the habit.
One reason the Mayor likes to shop at Sprouts Farmers Market is the 5-cent discount they offer for every reusable bag that customers bring when shopping. We applaud their efforts to encourage customers to reduce waste and become a part of the solution.
