Green Drinks is a free, informal monthly meeting of green-thinking government officials, business owners, students, home owners and other people that get together once a month to meet, greet, discuss, share, catch-up, eat, explore and chat all while sharing a drink.
This all started in 1989 at a pub called the Slug and Lettuce in Northern London, Edwin Datschefski was sitting with his green design colleagues Yorick Benjamin and Paul Scott when he noticed an enviro-minded acquaintance at a nearby table. As it turned out, the friend was sitting with a few of his own eco-conscious mates, so they pulled some tables together. And so a movement was born.
All over the world people are gathering for Green Drinks to discuss environmental issues and make new eco-minded friends. The informal atmosphere that surrounds Green Drinks, allows people from all walks of life to mingle in a relaxed atmosphere, sharing ideas both simple and large and getting everyone personally and professionally involved in a sustainable future.
If you are eco-minded and would like to know more about the environmental issues that surround your city, check out Green Drinks in your area.
