Give a little and get a little this Earth Day by purchasing a pair of Naya sandals. For every Zenobia or Zephyr sandal purchased during the Spring 2013 season Naya will plant one tree in Colorado. The “Buy it. Plant it.” campaign was created to support reforestation efforts following the devastating damage caused by recent wildfires in Colorado.
Warm weather will be here in force before we know it and Naya’s sandals are the perfect weekend wear for spring and summer. A new pair of shoes for you and a new tree for the beautiful state of Colorado … you just can’t go wrong.
Check out the Zenobia and the Zephyr at shoes.com. $89 a pair.
The past couple of years have been big for Big D. From the Perot Museum to Klyde Warren Park to the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, our beloved city continues to get bigger and better. We love these new additions and the life they have breathed into Downtown and the Trinity River area but a problem remains. Vibrant Downtown and the burgeoning Trinity River Corridor remain disconnected, the result of design decisions made over the past century.
The Connected City Design Challenge is on a mission to change that and they want your help. Along with professionals, The Connected City Design Challenge is interested in hearing creative ideas from Dallas students and citizens passionate about connecting downtown with the planned Trinity River Corridor Park and overcoming the physical, psychological and economical divide that exists today.
Who better to help find a workable solution than the men, women and children who call Dallas home? Do you have a bright idea? Or does your child? Start brainstorming! You have until October 3 to submit your proposal.
