Reducing Furniture Waste in Dallas

“We started by looking at furniture flip ping, so we purchased furniture on Face book marketplace that we would then clean and repair,” Pennell said. “While that was lucrative, one of the things that we noticed is that it wasn’t actually doing anything to reduce furniture waste.”

After choosing which city they want to buy in, shoppers see a list

CouchCycled also donates pieces they can’t resell that are still in usable“Wecondition.don’tdoany reupholstery or anything because that’s really going to directly impact the ability to keep the furniture affordable, and so what we usually do with those items that still have a good amount of life left –those are the ones that we’ll clean and repair and resell,” co-owner Roman Pennell said. “Other items, like maybe a floral coach that’s 20 years old, still very sturdy – we may not be able to resell that, but it still has a good amount of life left. That’s something that we know families in need can still benefit from.”

In the future, Pennell said he hopes to increase their online marketplace, provide a physical space where people can browse their items (their warehouse in Plano is primari ly used for storage), and expand further into furniture consignment.

Sarah-Allen Preston splits her time between Dallas and Kansas City to run Afloat, a mobile app that connects users with local busi nesses for gifting on demand.

When ordering on Afloat, cus tomers start by opening the app and choosing whether they want to shop in Dallas or Kansas City. With Dallas being the location of Preston’s alma mater, SMU, and Kansas City being where her sons live, it made sense for her to pursue it in both places.

Pennell and fellow co-owner Andrew Muniz, who have backgrounds in software sales, came up with the concept last summer.

“Through both of those experi ences, I really realized how import ant connection, in the supportive aspect of the word, is,” Preston said.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates about 9 million tons of furniture get tossed each year – or about 5% of everything brought to landfills.

The items they were buying would have been purchased and used by someone else, he explained. Getting furniture that would have gone to a landfill took pivoting to a new business model.

Pennell said the ability to help reduce fur niture waste and give back to their community was their motivation for using their sales expe rience in a new way with CouchCycled.

The idea for Afloat came after one of her sons needed an openheart surgery at birth, and she split with her husband just a year lat er. She was an event planner who understood the importance of cel ebrating relationships and connec tions, but after encountering this adversity, she understood it on a more personal level.

Before his time in Dallas ISD, Meak er served as assistant principal, teacher, and coach for schools in Princeton, McKinney, and Weatherford ISDs. He came to Dallas ISD because he wanted to “get involved with more of the inner-city students and help our students who need more role models, need more support, and just need better people to care about them.”

AT A GLANCE

We try to teach them and encourage them that all students can be leaders, we just lead in different ways, whether that’s vocal, or that’s leading by example, or that’s leading in art.

Now in a new school year, Meaker plans to lead the campus of 11 age groups and about 400 students by focusing on safety, integrating into the new campus, and encouraging success both inside and out of the classroom, specifi cally through leadership-specific teaching.

34 October 2022 | Schoolsprestonhollowpeople.com

Meaker comes from Woodrow Wilson High School, where he served as assistant principal for three years. On that campus, the involved parent base is similar to the one at Walnut Hill, Meaker said, equipping him to interact with families in a similar way. He also supported a new wing of Woodrow Wilson’s building that involved helping teachers and students navigate the move to a new space, which will translate when the new Walnut Hill campus opens in January.

“My passion for education really start ed as a student,” Meaker said. “I loved ex tracurriculars. I went to a small school,

teach, so they can be better in the classroom to better support our students,” Meaker said.

Dr. Philip Meaker joined the Walnut Hill team July 18 as principal.

His relationships with sponsors made him want to give back while he was a student. So, he became a coach. He spent five years teaching and coaching, then switched to ed ucational leadership at Shirley Hall Middle School as assistant principal in 2018.

After President Biden an nounced an unprecedented plan to reduce student debt, the issue of overwhelming college costs again made its way into the na tionalWhiledialogue.many believe the pro posed debt relief plan will help students who struggle to make payments, others contend it will contribute to a trend of egregious fiscal oversight within the higher education system.

For years, Dan Hooper, a data strategist from Highland Park, has studied this issue while advocating for students and proposed a “smart er way” to help them achieve their academic goals.

More than 98% of the Schol arShot students are first-genera tion Americans. The program has helped 182 students earn a degree with an average debt per degree less than $1,500. In a state where the average debt for a university degree is over $45,000, this is an incredible accomplishment, Hooper said.

TO CELEBRATE

Proceeds from the garden benefit the growth of the maintenance and improvement of A Woman’s Garden, and the need for fund raising continues to grow to support the yearround maintenance of the plantings, features, structures, and repairs. Fundraising efforts in clude those by members of the Women’s Coun cil and donors who give financial gifts in return for naming features in the garden.

“Our Women’s Council members are con nected by a strong vine of love for nature, earth ly beauty, and A Woman’s Garden,” Hardin said. “Together, we have taken that connective vine and grown not only a beautiful garden but a legacy of volunteerism and friendship.”

Overlooking White Rock Lake, the world-renowned display of design and histo ry serves as a living testament to the council’s founders, Margaret McDermott and Virgin ia Nick, and other members who have com mitted to creating a garden dedicated to the spirit of women across generations. The design brings in rustic strength, water and landscape, formal and naturalistic elements, and refuge and renewal to reflect a respect for nature and the feminine ideal.

“The relationship between the Women’s Council and the Dallas Arboretum is truly a wonderful partnership,” said Mary Brinegar, president and CEO of the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Society. “Both groups have high standards and an interest in making sure those visiting from our area and indeed from afar see a garden that is competitive with the finest gar dens in the world, due to classic design and at tention to detail.”

COUNCIL CELEBRATES 40TH, WOMAN’S GARDEN TURNS 25

Woman’s Garden at the Dallas Arbore tum and Botanical Garden is turning 25.

Not only does 2022 mark the garden’s 25th anniversary, but it also celebrates the Wom en’s Council’s 40th anniversary. The now 500-member body was founded in 1982 with the mission of making the garden’s design, construction, funding, and endowment a real ity — and in 40 years, the nonprofit has con tinued to do just that.

The garden was started in 1997 by the Women’s Council of the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden and, to this day, is the only public garden in the country conceived by, funded by, and dedicated to women.

Dallas Galas: Not Your Mother’s Banquet Food

As a donor and guest, have you ever de cided to attend a philanthropic event based on the food to be served?

Does the menu matter more than the cause

Chairing a philanthropic event of any size is no small task. I’ve chaired a few my self and, depending on the occasion, have spent up to a year working with the bene ficiary, its leadership, an event planner in some cases, and a multitude of vendors.

not. However, organizers want guests to attend and enjoy the event so they can become more engaged with the cause. Good food and beverage are part of the equation, keeping in mind that respect ing donor funds is priority one. Dallas is one of the most philanthropic cities in the country; the parties are just the icing on the cake.

Oh, and then there is the real reason for the event: fundraising. Some philanthropists and organizations make it look easy to raise hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars in one event, but it’s not. However, there are perks.

Many large fundraisers are held at ho tels, but that doesn’t mean the food is in stitutional. One of the season’s largest and most exquisite events is Crystal Charity Ball at the Hilton Anatole. The ballroom holds

Rooms with dark wood floors need light walls, or else the room will be too dark and cave-like. That said, this still leaves a wide variety of paint color options, from cream to light gray, light blue, or pale green. In corporating plants is good: Bright green ery pops against a dark base. Natural light also reflects beautifully against the grain of dark-stained wood, so try to let in lots of natural light.

Slow cooking requires little at tention during the cooking pro cess. Simply combine ingredients in the bottom of the pot, cover, select the cooking temperature, and walk away. Before long, sa vory aromas fill the air, becoming irresistible as the hours pass.

The dry rub and meaty juices combined with the aromatics, cre ating an array of mouthwatering flavors. After shredding the pork shoulder, I served it in warm flour tortillas, garnished with a tangy cabbage slaw.

Dallas, TX— Homeowners who are buying, selling, or renovating a residence, often visualize how living spaces, both outside and inside a home, will be used for different occasions. They may imagine a quiet moonlit night on a patio or deck, or a more festive backdrop for gatherings and celebrations. Either way, creating the right lighting can change a home’s mood with the flip of a switch. Adding customized mood light ing in and outside of residences is becoming more de sirable, especially by younger homeowners, according to Richard Lentz, owner of Lentz Landscape Lighting. “Many people want controlled lighting by phone, but it can be expensive and unpredictable.” says Lentz. “We usually recommend you have a strategizing meeting first to determine what you hope to accomplish; then design a custom lighting plan accordingly. We find most residents choose to have a nightly look, but when they entertain outdoors, they bring it up a level.” he added “At Lentz, we design plans homeowners can control, zone by zone, room by room or with a central panel set up; creating lighting “scenes” as simple or as intricate as they want. “, said Richard.
