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 -

The Dallas Eco-op will host a pop-up organic market this Sunday from 1-3pm. There'll be heirloom plants, organic produce, worm castings, and worm wine. You can BYOB and of course riding your bike, taking a hike, and bringing the whole family highly encouraged. The address is 10137A Shoreview, Dallas, TX 75238.

In the green business realm, new organic bamboo apparel arrived last week at the Greener Good in Ft. Worth. Fall styles are 60% off and through the weekend new styles are 15% off. All you have to do is mention their facebook post advertising the sale in store or use code GGO32812 online. Of course, visit the Greener Good on Facebook to keep up with their latest sales and announcements.
