Despite the cold, windy and rainy weather, Dolphin Blue’s staff members Courtney, Mike and Miguel along with our CEO Tom Kemper arrived early on Saturday morning for the very first Green Source DFW Run for the Environment at Cedar Hill State Park, sponsored by Dolphin Blue, to set up our booth that featured several of our Pet Supplies, Kids Toys, Planners & CalendarsPersonal Care Products and Cleaning Supplies. We also featured our new line of dog toys, Zogoflex: Chew, Play and Treat toys.

“There was a good energy there and definitely excitement when the race began. Everyone I spoke to was passionate about living green in some way or another.

Dolphin Blue was able to educate some people on why our products are so important, others already knew what we did and expressed their adulation.

There were a lot of great aspects that you don’t see at other runs, such as organic vendors, compost bins for all the post-race bananas and portable solar panels providing all of the power needed.”

Sponsors, such as Wildtree, gave samples of their oils and spices to those who visited their tent while Kroger gave out fruits, drinks and snack bars.

Dolphin Blue gave out organic Body Wash and Body Lotion samples to everyone who wandered to our booth and Dolphin Plush Dog Toys to the energetic pups who were at the event.

Dan Lepinski’s solar shuttle provided power for the live band and the race timers.

Preservation Tree and Texas Trees Foundation donated chinquapin oaks, which were included in the goodie bags given out to all the participants.

It was good to see a lot of people who care about our planet show up on such a gloomy day for a good cause. Everyone from Dolphin Blue had a great time at the run and we hope to see you all at the next Run for the Environment.
