Annual celebrations such as Texas Recycles Days are part of H-E-B’s longstanding pledge to reduce its impact on the environment. Through the company’s Our Texas, Our Future commitment, H-E-B’s mission is to increase awareness, access and education around sustainability efforts that help preserve land, water and air in Texas.
Since 2012, H-E-B has given more than $20 million to more than 500 environmental organizations in land and water conservation, habitat and coastal preservation and community cleanups. As the presenting sponsor for the Texas Parks centennial celebration, H-E-B recently made a $1 million donation to support programming aimed to engage all Texans in discovering and enjoying the nearly 90 state parks in Texas. Additionally, Field & Future by H-E-B products supports Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation in efforts such as coastal conservation along the Texas Gulf Coast, Black Bear restoration in West Texas and the establishment of Palo Pinto Mountains State Park, the first new state park to be opened in North Texas in 25 years.
