One of the most important days of the year is coming up - Earth Day on April 22nd!
There are tons of great events going on all around DFW giving you opportunities to learn more ways to be environmentally conscious, and also about green local businesses! So to kick off the month I wanted to put together a list of those events all over!
At Elephant Trunk Moving Supplies, we are determined to doing our part in saving the planet, by educating the community about the importance of Earth Day. We are helping our customers do their part by renting them reusable plastic moving boxes.
