Take Care of Texas

All Texans have a part to play in preserving our exceptional quality of life.

Take Care of Texas is a statewide campaign from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality that provides helpful information on Texas’ successes in environmental protection and encourages all Texans to help keep our air and water clean, conserve water and energy, reduce waste, and save a little money in the process!

Thank you for doing your part to Take Care of Texas. And, remember—Texas has clean air, rivers, lakes, and bays, so get outdoors and enjoy them!

How Texans Are Doing Their Part

I use a rain barrel to collect rainwater for watering my outdoor plants; its better for the plants and easier on my water bill. Sometimes I even use the rainwater to wash my dog!
