Earth Week in Texas

By April 18, 2018No Comments

Earth Day 2018 is on Sunday April 22nd ​this year! Here at KTB, we’ve been celebrating  all week long and even asked our social media followers to join us in pledging to #KeepTXBeautiful. 

Earth Day and the entire month of April is dedicated to Mother Earth and keeping her clean and pollution free. We offer a number of ways to get involved and help keep the Earth beautiful. One of the best places to start is our Find An Affiliate page. Here, you can find the affiliate organization nearest you and reach out to learn about upcoming events and local initiatives. Another great resource is our Events Calendar, where you can find a list of all the upcoming cleanups and events. Getting involved in any clean-up event near you is a wonderful way to keep your community beautiful during Earth Month.

All across Texas, events and clean-ups are happening to celebrate the Earth. Keep Texas Beautiful is exhibiting at the worlds largest environmental experience, EarthX in Dallas, Texas April 20-22.
