Earth Day Texas—
From April 21-23, we had the incredible privilege of participating in Earth Day Texas, the largest Earth Day event in the world. With over 850 exhibitors and 150,000 attendees, it was truly an epic celebration of the Earth and all its beauty and diversity. The event was divided into six major areas of focus: home, health, and active lifestyle; academic, culture, and community; technology and innovation; natural resources and conservation; policy and industry; and children and family. With so many options to choose from, there was something for everyone.
