Taking steps toward environmental sustainability may seem like a difficult task, but simple steps like riding public transportation can be an easy way you can positively impact the planet.
This week on Instagram, EarthX
took over our account sharing the following simple truths about the environment ahead of its three-day celebration
April 20-22 at Fair Park:
: Dallas takes the running as the 11th most polluted city in the U.S., and North Texas has the highest ozone levels in the entire state.
: Oceans generate every second breath we take, and 8 million tons of plastic populate oceans annually.
: Planting trees helps the environment. A single tree absorbs one ton of carbon dioxide in its lifetime.
: Large portions of the Arctic Ocean experience alarming warm winter days, with surface temperatures exceeding 25 degrees above normal.
