Earth Day Texas Becomes EARTHx, Announced at Inaugural EARTHxGlobal Gala

Brand evolution reflects global approach of bringing people together from around the world to find solutions for environmental concerns


For immediate release

DALLAS (April 22, 2017 Earth Day) – Earth Day Texas (EDTx) announced Friday night at the inaugural EARTHxGlobal Gala at Fair Park that going forward Earth Day Texas is now known as EARTHx.  

EARTHx CEO, Ryan Brown, called it a “new chapter for our organization and a transformation.”

In front of a crowd of 283 guests from around the country and around the world, he went on to explain that hosting the nation’s largest Earth Day celebration had allowed for significant growth and opportunities with national and global partners. The organization set out to create a brand that is more than just an event. EARTHx is a global platform for business, politicians, investors, entrepreneurs and citizens wanting to take part in the growing environmental conversation and movement.

Brown explained it as “the movement the world needs right now, unobstructed by politics and fueled by your desire to make your mark for good.”  The effort will include year-round engagement around the world through events, appearances, discussions, and of course a strong online presence focused on providing unbiased information to help individuals, corporations, and politicians make better, more informed decisions.

The politics of Earth Day and environmental issues have become central to this 47 year old tradition. Trammell S. Crow, founder of Earth Day Texas and a well-known Republican, has lead this initiative and passionately encouraged non-partisan interest in the future of our planet.

The event hosted in partnership with Global Green was the perfect backdrop for this announcement complete with a 300-pound globe cake. Several Global Impact Awards were given. Honorees included: Captain Paul Watson, CEO of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, oceanographer and author Dr. Sylvia EarleThe World Bank Connect4Climate Program and the Center for Environmental Health.
