Meet Socket! Socket is the mascot for the Department of General Services (D.O.G.S.) Sustainability Division. Socket grew up running and playing in the outdoors, so when he got older Socket knew he wanted to protect the outdoors he loves. He attended Barkmore University, where he earned a degree in Environmental Sustainability. On a typical day, Socket can be found around Metro educating and encouraging everyone to make environmentally conscious decisions. Socket loves to water the plants, take long walks through some of Nashville’s green spaces, and upcycle used materials into dog toys for his friends. Look for Socket at our next event!
