Stephanie always brings a positive presence to the show and in these times, the message is: think about the opportunities for action right here in Houston.  She outlines the involvement process for action in the current Texas legislative session and takes us through her own recent committee testimony.  In the weeks to come, we’ll have more as issues close to home are debated and local control of our own Houston environment is challenged.

WATER, easy to take for granted now, but what will you think in July?  Nell and Dean have built a fascinating small business around this concern.  They started building rainwater tanks when they were faced with a 6 month wait for a Texas built one.  They have gone from a shipping container shop to a large warehouse, from hand power to state-of-the-art (their own art) stainless steel welding.  We talk about rain, work and building something that lasts in Houston.

Zero Waste!, how does that sound?  It’s a worthy personal goal we can individually work toward in this day where we feel pretty helpless to do things as a body politic.  That said, there is a lot to learn here about waste, policy and opportunities in Houston.  This would be an interesting one to look into the archives, too, because waste and recycling are key environmental explorations on this show.
