EarthShare of Texas HEB Tearpad Campaign

March 28 - May 1. In recognition of Earth Day, HEB has selected EarthShare of Texas to be the April beneficiary for its in-store coupon promotion. This means that customers can tear off and add check-out coupons worth $1, $3, or $5 to their total bill to support environmental work throughout the State of Texas. When you support EarthShare of Texas, you support the work of over 3 dozen environmental nonprofits in Texas, including SFC!
