This past Tuesday, Green Drinks gathered at Salt Lake City’s Even Stevens Sandwiches.
From 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., we Green Drink-ers ate delicious sandwiches provided by Even Stevens and sipped beers from Wasatch. It was a time to chat and network.
At about 7 p.m., we learned about one of the city’s newest B-Corporations. Did you know that for every sandwich purchased at Even Stevens, the ingredients for another sandwich are donated to one of four local non-profits (YWCA, The Rescue Mission, Volunteers of America, and The Good Samaritan Program)?
To date, they’ve donated enough ingredients to make more than 17,000 sandwiches!
Green Drinks allows for plenty of time to get to know local “green” businesses and to fill up on great food and good conversation. These events occur once a month and at a different “green venue” each time. Stay informed on their Facebook page.
We’ll see you in November!

Spring is here, and the annual LiveGreen SLC! Festival is on the horizon.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 3rd at Library Square from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Salt Lake City, Utah’s 2014 annual Live Green SLC! Festival, presented by ReDirect Guide, showcases a full spectrum of sustainable green products, services and ideas from cutting edge renewable technologies to everyday solutions that can be implemented in the home.
At this outdoor event, held in the beautiful downtown Library Plaza, attendees will enjoy features such as interactive and educational exhibits, local and organic foods and goods, live auctions, a children’s area, eco-carnival games, music, entertainment and much more.
There are three great ways to get involved:
- Exhibit! Host a booth to present your green products or services and connect with a great community of green-inspired people. Salt Lake City e2 Businesses get 25% off booth space.
- Become a sponsor. Let your organization benefit from the good will and strong media outreach and promotional efforts associated with the LiveGreen SLC! Festival.
- Volunteer. Get involved and experience amazing opportunities to lend a hand, make connections, and have some fun!
Every spring through fall, SLCgreen takes advantage of event season to engage with the community and spread the word about all things green in Salt Lake City.
Here are a few shots of where the SLCgreen booth has landed so far — keep your eyes peeled for our logo at your next community event. Do you have one we should know about? Email us!
