Texas Campaign for the Environment’s North Texas office is celebrating the end of election season and its own progress in advancing recycling and sustainability at a house party.
Texas Campaign for the Environment started with a vision of reducing waste and pollution back in 1991 with offices in Dallas and Houston. That year, the group’s community organizers generated 70,000 petition signatures in Dallas, and 20,000 signatures in Arlington that helped convince the cities to start curbside recycling programs.
Twenty-five years later, Texas Campaign for the Environment is still winning changes to public policy and corporate practices that are reducing waste and pollution. Primarily through door-to-door organizing and grassroots lobbying, the group amplifies the voices of tens of thousands of Texans to change environmental and public health policies in Texas. The advocacy group aims to expand recycling to all businesses, apartments, and public spaces throughout the DFW Metroplex over the next few years.
The house party will feature renowned wines from Tuscany, complementary appetizers, and plenty of raffle prizes to local establishments. Guests are encouraged to bring their favorite bottle of wine to enter the wine raffle—winner takes all! Other raffle prizes include gift certificates to Sevy’s Grill, Two Corks and a Bottle, Jackson’s Home and Garden, and Checkered Past Winery.
Tickets and event details are available through the organization’s website: www.texasenvironment.org/grape-cause
