Advice on when to run your dish or clothes washer isn't what you expect to hear from Big Tex.
But this year, The State Fair Of Texas icon, is pushing an important message, a green one, and people are taking note.
Sue Gooding with the fair says, "We are known as the fried food capital of Texas, frying all of this food happens to take a lot of cooking oil and it's all collected and turned into biofuel."
That's not all, food and ride coupons are recycled and even manure is used to help fertilize all the gardens around the state fairgrounds.
Oncor is also hosting an interactive exhibit showcasing simple, money-saving ideas anyone can implement in their own homes.
And it's giving Big Texas something more to talk about as he welcomes you to The State Fair of Texas.
