DALLAS (KDAF) — Nowadays sustainable living is a focal point in many people’s lives, whether that be a regular recycling routine, composting or switching to solar. This is often referred to as ‘green’ living.
One of the easiest ways to be consistent in a ‘green’ lifestyle is to live in a city that promotes green living and works to protect the environment.
