As Kermit the Frog tells us, "It's not easy being green", which may be true, but let's at least find out ways that we can do our part through our everyday lives.
Ever wonder what those big, leafy, branchy, green things are that we see around the city? Oh, that's right, they are trees. Thanks to Trees Atlanta we have even more of them to provide our bodies with health and oxygen. While most of us are so busy working and creating amazing events, that we probably don't even look up to notice them, they ARE there...and we need them there.
Green isn't just for St. Patty's day beer, The Hulk, aliens and the ever-so sexy green m&m, but it is also the Pantone color of 2017 and what we will be talking at the April NACE meeting. Find out ways to conserve in your businesses and through producing events that will help us all to "lead the scene to be green".
Parking is complimentary and available on the propoerty at Trees Atlanta, along the driveway on the EXIT side, on the GRAVEL lot at the corner of Chestnet Ave. and Moreland Ave. as well as street parking. Please follow all parking restrictions and laws.
