Earth Day celebrations in Big D

earth day dallas eventsSince the inception of Earth Day in the 70’s, “going green” has transitioned from being a cause to support to a lifestyle choice. Here are a few ways to celebrate our planet this Earth Day weekend:

Earth Day Dallas: The 2nd Annual Earth Day Dallas is a free event at Fair Park April 21 and 22 from 10 am to 6 pm. The event is host to an Eco Expo in addition to a Green Talker Series, Green film series, live music, a home and garden workshop, and Earth Yoga, among other things. Yes, Dallas was a little late in joining the green revolution with a big Earth Day event (last year was the first one) but it’s better late than never.

Oak Cliff Earth Day: Oak Cliff dons its own Earth Day celebration at Lake Cliff Park. There will be plenty of opportunities to purchase plants, adopt a pet, buy art from locals, and learn about bees, butterflies and organic gardening. The event takes place April 22 from 12 – 5.

Grab a free cup of joe: Starbucks is celebrating Earth Day by offering a free cup of coffee to anyone that brings in a reusable travel mug or container. Travel and reusable mugs will also be on sale at 20% off. Free coffee!!

Central 214 Earth Care Patio Party: The super eco-conscious restaurant Central 214 is hosting a patio party and benefit for Trust for Public Land and The Nature Conservancy April 20 from 5:30-7:30. Recycled art by Alisha Driggers will also be on display. A $20 donation at the door is suggested.

Zoo Run: The Fort Worth Zoo is hosting their annual Zoo Run and Earth Day Celebration. Participate in a 5k, 10k, or 1k fun run to support conservation Saturday, April 21. You can then donate your running shoes post-race to a local shelter (gently used, please) or recycle your e-waste by bringing any old cell phones, computers, dvd’s, etc to the conservation tent on race day.
