Earth Day Texas (formerly, Earth Day Dallas) is an annual, outdoor festival seeking to elevate environmental awareness and influence the way Texans think, live and work. The family-friendly and free-admission event allows leaders in the corporate, academic and non-profit worlds to unite and show Texans how green lifestyle choices can lower their cost of living, improve their health, and help save the environment.

The heart of the festival is the Eco Expo where exhibitors will use their presence to promote their achievements as green leaders, and teach attendees how to take environmentally responsible action by better utilizing available resources, switching to eco-friendly products, or joining their organizations.

WE invites you to welcome in 2015 and network with women from a variety of environmental fields...making valuable business connections and friends. This is a free event and open to both members and non-members. Dinner and drinks on your own. Enjoy food at the Chicken Scratch located next to The Foundry.

Led by Dallas sustainability advocate Amy King, founder of Nested Strategies for independents, creatives, entrepreneurs, business leaders, and anyone who wants to solidify their personal brand.
