Earth Day Texas 2016

Fostering a Way Forward

It can be difficult to watch or read the news today and not be disheartened by the seemingly endless number of issues negatively impacting our environment. At Earth Day Texas, we believe everyone can play a role in creating more positive headlines through awareness, innovation, and progressive action. It is up to us to work together to build a more sustainable future.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focused on environmental education and awareness, Earth Day Texas has created the world’s largest annual forum for sharing the latest initiatives, discoveries, research, innovations, policies, products, and corporate practices that are reshaping our world.

This three-day free event is held in April to celebrate progress, hope, and innovation and is the largest event in the world of its kind. Earth Day Texas brings together environmental organizations, businesses, academic institutions, government agencies, speakers, interactive programming, and subject matter experts. Attendees will also enjoy numerous outdoor experiences, including live music, sustainable beer and food pavilions, electric bike test tracks, and family activities.
