Padre Island and Plastic

My Son recently went to Padre for vacation and he was excited to tell me that the Island has baned single-use plastic bags. I have not been to Padre in a few years so I looked it up. They started this in 2012.

A group of surfers championed for this along with Alita Bagley the city councilwoman . The ordinance allows for compostable plastic bags or recyclable paper bags, though the hope is shoppers will get used to carrying reusable cloth bags. I am so glad to hear about this. At least there will not be many bags coming from this Island, but a few may still wash up from other places. It is a good start!
Brownsville ,TX has banned plastic bags as well .👍🏻 ✌🏻
