H-E-B giving away reusable bags


SAN ANTONIO H-E-B announced that it will give away 250,000 reusable shopping bags at all stores across Texas to help eliminate 1.5 million plastic bags from circulation.

In order to receive the free bag, each consumer must bring at least five plastic shopping bags for recycling. Consumers who meet this standard will receive a coupon for a free reusable bag while supplies last.


“We want to reinforce our enthusiasm for going green and encourage our shoppers to do the same,” said Susan Ghertner, director of environmental affairs. “By giving away 250,000 reusable bags we are making it possible for people to make a positive difference when it comes to the environment.”


In addition, H-E-B is offering customers the option to purchase green bags not part of the giveaway and help contribute to the Keep Texas Beautiful program.
