The supermarket chain says it will provide 250,000 custom-designed reusable bags to customers across Texas as a show of support for environmental protection. Since 2008, H-E-B has given out nearly three million reusable bags in celebration of Earth Day.
Beginning at 1 p.m. on April 22, customers who visit any H-E-B, Central Market, Joe V’s Smart Shop, or Mi Tienda in Texas are eligible to receive a complimentary Earth Day bag featuring art designed by an H-E-B Partner and made from recycled plastic bottles. The complimentary Earth Day bag will be available while supplies last.
Customers can also purchase additional Earth Day reusable bags for $1.50.
This year’s Earth Day tote was designed by Julia Rojas, a 13-year H-E-B Partner from San Antonio who has designed art for the commemorative bag in previous years. The McAllen-native’s design, For the Love of Texas, features an intricate illustration showcasing several native plant and animal species, according to H-E-B.
