The Eco-Metroplex

Dallas/Fort Worth may not leap to mind as a haven for green living and eco-resources, but our Metroplex is greener than you think! Fort Worth was recently ranked the 15th Greenest City in the United States by Popular Science magazine (based on renewable source energy, transportation, green living and recycling), and several other cities are leading the way with innovative green web sites and programs that get residents active in protecting their communities.

Several cities are holding green events this month:

Plano’s Live Green Expo 2008 : Empowering North Texans
Saturday, April 12

Colleyville Green Festival
Saturday, April 26

Look no further than your city’s own web site to learn more about green resources. Here are a few links to get you started – go to your own city’s site or call for more details on what’s available in your area:
