Earth Day Dallas (EDD) 2013 will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., April 20 and 21, at Fair Park, in Dallas. A 700,000-square-foot Eco Expo with 700 exhibitors will promote environmentally responsible actions and eco-friendly products and feature educational speakers and demonstrations on topics that include water conservation, composting, global warming,
energy tips and inspiring ideas to incorporate eco-friendly ideas into everyday life.
EDD seeks to elevate environmental awareness and influence the way North Texans think, live and work. Professional racecar driver Leilani Munter, Discovery’s Planet Green Number One Eco Athlete in the world, is this year’s special guest.
Other activities include a Radio Disney Family Zone, environmental activities, tree climbing and dance performances. Traditional festival food and beverages will be available, along with healthy, organic and gluten-free options.
