For over 40 years, Earth Day has inspired individuals worldwide to demonstrate their commitment to environmental protection and sustainability. Houstonians are committed to preserving and improving the wonderful quality of life we have in this region and have shown their support for multiple conservation and quality of life initiatives over that time period.
For this reason, on Saturday, April 26, 2014, eight Houston-area conservation groups- Air Alliance Houston, Bayou Land Conservancy, Bayou Preservation Association, Buffalo Bayou Partnership, Galveston Bay Foundation, Houston Audubon, Katy Prairie Conservancy, and Texas Campaign for the Environment Fund- are collaborating for the third annual “Give 5% to Conserve Houston” campaign!
The campaign encourages local businesses to commit to donate five percent of gross sales on April 26th, the Saturday after Earth Day, to the above listed non-profits that dedicate their time and energy into making the Houston area a better place. In return, the participating non-profit partners encourage the local community to celebrate Earth Day by supporting these businesses throughout Earth Day weekend.
