The Memnosyne Institute held its 6th annual Green Source DFW Sustainable Leadership Awards awards banquet last night at the Dallas Arboretum.
Green Source DFW is an environmental news and community resource whose mission statement reads:
“Green Source DFW is an education project to bring together environmental groups, green businesses and the Dallas-Fort Worth community and provide them with tools to communicate with each other.
The goal of Green Source DFW is to advance the environmental movement in the Dallas-Fort Worth area by promoting: green living, sustainable practices, nonprofit environmental organizations, eco-friendly green businesses, environmental education, scientific information, public policy discussions, and socially responsible investing”.
GreenSource DFW editor, Julie Thibodeaux, announced the finalists for the prestigeous designations on October 12 here, https://www.greensourcedfw.org/articles/finalists-announced-2017-green-source-dfw-sustainable-leadership-awards.

Amid much opposition and facing City legal litigation, Bluestone withdrew its request for the permit!!
