The campaign was formed by the North Central Texas Council of Governments with support of regional government agencies, nonprofit organizations, transportation authorities and others. Air North Texas annual reports offer details about how the campaign is implemented each year.

Dress Up Your Lawn Organically


Earth Kind Services

Earth Kind Services brings homeowners an organic solution for struggling landscapes. Owner Beau Propes has more than 25 years of experience in landscape management. He notes, “People want to feel good about what they put on their lawns because their kids and pets play on it. Plants and lawns will be more drought tolerant and have less problems with disease and pests.  We do all the hard work—deliver, spread and clean-up.” Earth Kind Services also delivers and installs mulch. Their newest service is providing lawn leveling with a soil/compost mix.

Top dressing with organic compost improves soil by adding organic matter and soil microbes.  Soil microbes are vital because they help release nutrients to the roots of lawn and shrubs. North Texas soil is often of poor quality where builders have removed the topsoil or compacted it during construction. Earth Kind uses specialized spreaders that do a professional job, more effectively than just a wheelbarrow and rake.

Thermography is Not Just for Breasts


The Thermography Center

“Regulation thermography (RT) is unique in that it assesses the actual functioning of organs and systems using a temperature response, and provides a highly detailed, multi-page analytical report on the whole body, including the breasts,” states Marta Cordell.

Over the last 18 years, the Thermography Center of Dallas has performed thousands of non-invasive thermography screenings on patients. Unlike with mammography, there is no pain, compression or radiation of the breasts.

In addition, because RT evaluates the function of organs and systems, it can show the real-time development and progression of dysfunction, unlike X-ray or MRI. Used by a trained thermographer, RT can reveal underlying causes of symptoms and assesses the function of all internal organs, immune and lymph systems, breasts and dental health in detail.

Location: 5220 Spring Valley Rd., Ste. 405, Dallas. For more information, call 214-352-8758,  email [email protected] or visit
