There is so much that going on in Houston that is Green, it’s easy to miss when something exciting comes out. Just for fun, I thought I would start putting some updates on here so you can stay current on what is happening. Here are a few items that you may want to know about:
Green House Gallery: This is one that I am really excited about. A group of artists have joined to create a Green Art Gallery in the heart of Montrose on W. Alabama. Their goal is to have a Gallery that will not only educate people on environmental topics, but support the Green Community in Houston and having a place for people to visit. Their Gala will be in September and a ‘must attend’ event! The date will most definitely be added to the calendar on this site.
Commute Solutions: They are a compilation of different companies and organizations that are raising awareness about Public Transportation in town and other communte solutions. If you go to their website and make a non-monetary ‘pledge’ you will get a FREE Certificate for Jamba Juice! I got mine in the mail today. ;0) Really cool site, check it out.
Houston Solar Tour: Many of you are probably aware of this annual event, and it is really coming together for this year! It will be Saturday October 4th with tons of great Solar Projects on the tour and a Picnic at Discovery Green at the end of the day that you won’t want to miss. This event is on the Calendar as well, and will keep you updated as more information comes available.
The Woodlands Green Sustainable Speaking Series: Another fantastic Community oriented idea here! The Woodlands Green, starting in September, will be doing monthly speaking events for residents in the area to learn more about Sustainability and other Green Topics. On Monday, September 15th I will be speaking along with Ann Baker Ronn on Green Investing. They have a few months of amazing topics lined up. Check out their site and click ‘Going Green’ to find out what else will be out there. And…it all speaking events will be on the Calendar. Also, in November Michael Strong with Greenhaus Builders will be speaking about Green and LEED Homebuilding/Remodeling. If you have not had the opportunity to hear him speak, you will defiinitely want to be there.
These are the topics that I have been meaning to post about for some time now. I will keep you all updated on changes and other new events! Very exciting GREEN things happenin’ in Houston over the next few months! Don’t forget to subscribe to the Calendar feed if you want to stay up to date on items that I place in there. Also, if you would like to subscribe by email or Text Message, I will be sending out reminders.
