Our weekly Green Roundup will let you know about deals going on at businesses in our green business directory (check it out if you haven't already). We'll also be detailing volunteer opportunities with local non-profits. It's one more way we're hoping to support and shine a light on the work of sustainable entrpreneurs and green businesses in the DFW area. This week -
Green Source is giving away a Mistura Timepiece (see image on the right). Post a green quotation on our Facebook wall to enter to win!
Green deals were hard to come by this week, but there's lots going on around town on the green front. Zac Trahan of the Dallas Ft. Worth area chapter of the Texas Campaign for the Environment, writes to remind us about the final briefing of the Dallas Gas Drilling Task Force to the Dallas City Council (see our interview with task force member Cherelle Blazer following the goup's final meeting). The task force is scheduled to present its final recommendations for the new ordinance governing gas drilling operations at a briefing for City Council members. Anyone attending will be the first to see complete maps of all proposed gas drilling locations, and City Council members will start to debate an issue that will affect all Dallas residents far into the future.
Here at Green Source, we love anything green and sustainable. That includes things like festivals and outdoor events that encourage folks to walk, enjoy nature and human interactions outside of the car! It's therefore with sadness that we note the cancellation of Jazz Under the Stars at the DMA for 2012. This is big news if, like Green Source editor Brandolon Barnett you were a regular and were waiting for this year's incarnation. You can check out the full story, with details on the DMA's plans for future, at PegasusNews.com. Finally, if you didn't catch it the DMN has a feature up detailing "Where to Find Fresh Produce in Dallas".
