Our October Bag Heroes are Dustin and Nicole Pringle. With backgrounds in environmental consulting and marine research, they understand that a healthy future for our coastal environment depends largely on human choices. One simple but important change they have made in their daily lives is to bring reusable bags when heading to the store.
“Marine animals like green sea turtles enjoy eating jellyfish. Unfortunately, they can mistake plastic bags for jellyfish and end up malnourished or dying. One thing we all can do to help the turtles is bring our own reusable bags! Together WE can make a difference.”
