Lubbock ISD and H-E-B are announcing a special partnership to honor Earth Day at a media event tomorrow.
Lubbock ISD has 10 of the more than 600 schools statewide participating in H-E-B’s annual School Plastic Bag Recycling Challenge. Each year, students from hundreds of classrooms across Texas collect thousands of pounds of plastic bags for the contest. On Earth Day, H-E-B will announce the schools that collected the most plastic bags, with top schools in each region receiving H-E-B gift cards as prizes.
Tomorrow’s event will have representatives from each Lubbock ISD campus participating in the challenge, along with leadership team members from H–E-B and Lubbock ISD. The event is at 1 p.m. on Friday, April 14 at the Lubbock H-E-B store, 4405 114th St.
“At H-E-B we are excited to share our passion for sustainability with the Lubbock community,” said Garrett Stauder, Lubbock H–E-B’s Tops Store Leader. “We are beyond grateful for the partnership with Lubbock ISD to increase awareness about recycling with the younger generations.”
Throughout the year, H-E-B is committed to reduce its impact on the environment through waste diversion efforts along with several other programs to help conserve and protect our great state, now and for generations to come. Through the company’s Our Texas, Our Future commitment, H-E-B’s mission is to increase awareness and education around sustainability efforts that help preserve land, water, and air in Texas.
