Take Care of Texas, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s statewide environmental education campaign, has announced that H-E-B, the state’s largest grocery store chain, is a Proud Partner in the statewide program.

“Environmental responsibility is important for all Texans. Now businesses and organizations may take a pledge to reinforce their commitment to protecting our natural resources,” says TCEQ Commissioner Zak Covar. “The Take Care of Texas Proud Partners program serves as a platform to recognize companies like H-E-B who make sustainable practices a part of their daily business.”

“H-E-B is proud to be the first statewide proud partner of the Take Care of Texas program,” says Susan Ghertner, H-E-B Director of Environmental Affairs. “With stores in more than 150 communities around Texas, it’s our responsibility to be a leader in environmental protection. We encourage other businesses to follow our lead, and pledge to Take Care of Texas.”

The Take Care of Texas Proud Partners program recognizes corporations, governments, nonprofits, and private entities that demonstrate a commitment to protecting the Texas environment. Participants who take the Proud Partner Pledge receive a Proud Partner decal and insignia identifying these organizations as good stewards of the Texas environment. Each Proud Partner receives a listing on the agency’s dedicated Take Care of Texas website.
