Taking care of ourselves & our planet

Proud Recipient

I was so honored to receive the Volunteer of the Year award from Keep Texas Beautiful just a few short weeks ago! It was awesome to hear about other individuals and companies who are also eco-minded.

City of Fort Worth's Media Release:
Keep Texas Beautiful presented its prestigious Volunteer of the Year award to Fort Worth’s own environmental caped crusader at its state conference this week in Austin.
Susan Johannes, a volunteer for Keep Fort Worth Beautiful, was a stay at-home mom and fitness instructor who turned her passion for educating children about healthy lifestyles and protecting the environment into a superhero persona. As “Green Girl,” complete with her superhero costume, she conducts programs for schools, churches and civic organizations complete with songs and cheers and encourages audience participation.

My family and I had a great time visiting Austin & San Antonio for the first time! We enjoyed seeing the Texas capitol building in Austin as well as the Riverwalk and Sea World in San Antonio.
