SAN ANTONIO — H-E-B is giving away 200,000 reusable bags on Earth Day as part of a recycling program created to help strengthen and reinforce recycling efforts across Texas.
In a press release from H-E-B, they said they joined the How2Recycle program to create a more sustainable Texas. To make recycling easier for customers, H-E-B will put labels on products that instruct what is recyclable and where and how you should recycle those products.
The press release said the How2Recycle label is already on numerous products and more are expected to be added throughout the year.
H-E-B launched an annual donation campaign to benefit Earthshare of Texas, which is a nonprofit that supports more than 70 conservation groups. The press release said H-E-B contributed more than $13 million to over 500 organizations since 2012.
Last year, H-E-B recycled more than 527 million pounds of recyclable materials, including 45 million pounds of food into animal feed and compost and 17 million pounds of plastic, the press release said.
