Entrepeneur Start Up Crawl

The Entrepeneur Start Up Crawl was held Thursday, 15 November.  Lloyd and I stopped at each location for informative sessions on what each venue had to offer the community


4:30 - 5;00:  Texas Wesleyan University - Start at Baker Building.  At 4:45, CM Moon and Gray stopped by for photos, accompanied by Robert Sturns. TWU had activities at the Baker Building, at the library, and the Business Accelerator across the street.


5:10 - 5:40:  TCC Opportunity Center - Eli has organized an engaging tour of all of their capabilities at the place, including some kind of giant game room.


5:50 - 6:20:  Handley Wedding District - the shops  looked really charming.


6:30 - 7:00:  UTARI -- they had their drone lab in action,and several interactive Virtual Reality therapy "games as well as several futuristic medical devices.


7:00 - 9:00:  After party at 4 Color Press, 3300 Lawnwood. The shipping containers they use for office spaces make for a very interesting photo backdrop.  River Bend Café is catering, and their food should also be very interesting, as will be the gigantic Heidelberg net zero printer.

(Kat was quite impressed with the new printing equipment.)

What are you doing for America Recycles Day?

Toss recyclables in your blue cart.

Each year on Nov. 15, millions of people across the United States take part in America Recycles Day, a day created to raise awareness about recycling and the purchasing of recycled products.

Recycling in Fort Worth is really simple, and the city hopes more residents decide that recycling is the right thing to do.

Every resident has a blue recycling cart to be filled with plastic, metal, glass containers and all kinds of paper.

And let’s recycle right, too. When items that can’t be recycled are tossed into the blue cart to be sorted at the recycle processing center, this material ends up going to the landfill. Because of all the additional handling, it costs about three times as much as it would if this material had been put in the brown cart to begin with.

Items on the do-not-recycle list include Styrofoam, plastic bags, plastic hoses and food scraps.

What about cardboard? Yes, nearly everything made from cardboard can be recycled in Fort Worth: toothpaste containers, cereal boxes, shipping boxes (flattened) and frozen food containers, to name a few.

For a complete list of what can be recycled in Fort Worth, visit the recycling page or call 817-392-1234.
