Back-to-School! Creating Environmentally Focused Future Generations

August is here and school is about to begin. With your help, your children can go back to school in an eco-friendly way. If you’re not sure where to begin, we’ve gathered a short list of sustainable back-to-school ideas for you and your children to implement to start the school year off on a green foot! If your child wears a school uniform, consider looking for fair trade suppliers or find clothing at your local resale shop.

Regional Smoking Vehicle Program

If you see a vehicle emitting excessive amounts of smoke from the tailpipe, you can do something about it and help the region breathe easier. The Regional Smoking Vehicle Program (RSVP) is one of many efforts aimed at improving air quality in Dallas-Fort Worth. RSVP is designed to inform and help motorists when their vehicles produce excessive smoke and pollutants as well as allow North Texans to take an active role in helping the region comply with the federal ozone standard. RSVP covers all 16 counties in the region, which also includes Erath, Hood, Hunt, Navarro, Palo Pinto, and Somervell. You can anonymously report a smoking vehicle by calling 817-704-2522 or visiting www.smokingvehicle.
