Posted by: TXrecycle Tags: There is no tags | Categories: Recycling, Articles

Communities and groups across the nation will soon celebrate Earth Day. The global environmental movement—slated this year for Monday, April 22, 2024—was created 54 years ago and is a welcome annual reminder for over one billion people to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Here in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, you can raise awareness, enjoy nature, teach your kids, and give back by participating in one or several fun, educational, and exciting events to support DFW recycling efforts.

As the Earth Day website states, this isn’t a “day.” This is a movement. It has evolved into the largest civic event in the world, activating billions across 192 countries to safeguard our planet and fight for a brighter future. How can you participate locally? We’re glad you asked. Here are some fun events to consider.
