Who says North Texas can’t be “green”? We may not have the rain, but at least we’re working on the whole ‘being more environmentally friendly’ aspect. On September 17th ECOFEST Arlington will take place at Levitt Pavilion where the Free Fall Concerts have been taking place. This family oriented event not only helps to build a sense of community but it also stimulates environment awareness across North Texas. Local business have been invited to showcase their green products as well as do-it-yourself home solutions, and if you have a business and would like to participate please feel free to come. The business will be positioned along the festival streets surrounding Founder’s Plaza. There is NO COST to attend!!
Ecofest 2011 begins at 10 am on Saturday 9/17 and will last until 10pm that night. Of course we’ve got local musical artists performing also in the Pavilion like: Velvet Love Box and Spoonfed Tribe. Ecofest Arlington is presented by Naturally Fun (Arlington Parks & Recreation) and the concerts are presented by Safe Harbor Insurance Solutions.
All day Saturday Ecofest will be going strong where you can expect:

Let’s reduce consumption of our natural resources and shoot to help reduce, repair and prevent environmental problems in the future. Start with simple things like turning off the lights if you’re not using a room or if you can use the sunlight from the window; Not running the water when brushing your teeth; Carrying your own reusable grocery bags or choosing paper over plastic; Carpooling with neighbors; Unplug seldom used appliances (and chargers when not in use) that contain only a few items which may also save on your utility bill; Set your computer to sleep or hibernate when you’re done using it; Reuse office print-outs as notepads; Recycle your aluminum cans, plastic bottles & newspapers.
These are just a few tips on being a little “greener” or eco-friendly. For more information, resources and some fun check out the 2011 Ecofest in Arlington at Levitt Pavilion and Founder’s Plaza, Saturday Sept. 17th (10am – 10pm)!
