The sun shone, the vendors were upbeat and the crowds turned out for Earth Day Dallas at Fair Park this weekend. While we heard some complaints about greenwashing, overall there was lots of green energy.

Winning the Green Source DFW Sustainable Leadership Award this year for "Entrepreneur" Eddie Lott says the award is special to him for a lot of reasons.

“First and foremost it means people such as our peers and the public recognize how hard we work every day and they recognize that the organization we've created matters enough to reward us for it and that validates our work.”
