Earth Day is officially celebrated April 22, but North Texas cities stretch out the holiday for four weeks starting in late March.

That's good news for greenies because that means fewer events overlap and you can attend an ecofest every week for a month. Check out the line up below – all events are free.

Here's a reusable bag for every occasion

Jan. 13, 2015

As of this month, Dallasites are no doubt becoming more motivated to use reusable bags, thanks to a single-use bag fee that went into effect Jan. 1.
