History

What started in 2011 as an outdoor event spanning five blocks in Dallas’ Arts District has grown to occupy approximately 500,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space in Dallas’ historic Fair Park.

When a local environmental issue came up with a utility company applying to build numerous coal-burning plants, a group of business people in Dallas stood up and opposed it and Trammell S. Crow joined that effort.

He discovered there were Texans who were willing to oppose the establishment and stand up for the environment. Crow says, “That battle was eventually won, but it was won by business, not by protesting.”

After winning that battle, the idea for an Earth Day EXPO was founded by Crow to create environmental awareness and give the general public ways to make changes in their everyday lives. The EXPO has grown to allow businesses, government agencies and nonprofits an opportunity to show their initiatives and their positive impact on the environment.

In 2018, EarthX hosted more than 137,000 attendees, over 600 exhibitors and 400 speakers, becoming the largest annual environmental exposition and programming initiative in the world. While many of the EarthX efforts are centered on the three-day event in April, numerous year-round events are being launched to generate additional awareness and inspire people to get involved and help make a difference.

EarthX continues to present attendees and participants with breakthrough solutions and fascinating innovations that will empower them to make a difference in their communities and the world – 365 days a year.

Protecting Our World with Organic Pest Control.

EarthX events helped consumers find green pest control options from partner Eco Friends Pest Control, which makes eco-friendly pest control options with zero synthetic chemicals and educates people on green solutions.

Sustainability is Not a Destination.

When Maria Boccalandro attended the first EarthX (then Earth Day Dallas) in 2011, she stopped by for a visit to the Dallas County Community College District exhibit booth.
