Green Drinks is an international network that was dreamed up by a Brit called Edwin Datschefski. There are Green Drinks meetings in 140 countries, from the UK to South Africa, Japan to Puerto Rico. In Britain, there are groups from Skegness to Tower Hamlets, from Stirling to Worthing, and everywhere in between.
It’s a totally brilliant concept. Get ye down to the pub with a bunch of like-minded eco-friendly souls, et voila! We network, we mingle, we find swap tips on how to make this a better world. Go see www.greendrinks.org for your local group.
I’ve just come home from LA Green Drinks, a fortnightly gathering of the great and good from LA’s eco-conscious community.
In the photo on the left you can see a very sweet lady called Nicole Bassett giggling at the camera. She is all about sustainable business practice, and is about to hear from a major organic fashion label about working with them on their corporate sustainability profile. Check out her brand new audio podcasts web site at sustainabilityinreview.com Barent Roth is the man in black standing by her side. He’s the Industrial Design Prinicipal at a seriously progressive sustainable design company grow-design.com
In the photo on the right, I’m with Jeff Hayes, a far-visioned guy who co-runs the-vector-group.com with his dad, and a corporate manager called Elizabeth Zampolli who helps run the LA chapter of Green Drinks.
And what’s more…. the bar where we met last night was celebrating its fourth birthday, so all the drinks were on the house! I cannot guarantee that will be the case at the next meeting in your area, but with that carrot alone, it’s certainly worth your while checking it out.
