If the answer is YES, please join us for the annual e2 Business -sponsored Green Drinks event coming up on Tuesday, November 13! It’s free to attend.

The e2 business program is SLCgreen’s very own sustainability consulting and marketing program. The businesses that participate receive expert consultation and guidance in incorporating sustainable business practices that will save money and reduce their impact on the environment. It’s free for any business located in Salt Lake City limits. Our office then has the fun opportunity to promote and highlight the sustainable achievements of these businesses.

The SLC Chapter of Green Drinks International was founded in January of 2007 and is a fun, informal opportunity for anyone interested in sustainability to get together over drinks and talk “green.” Networking events occur several times per year. Everyone is welcome. Bring business cards! Read more

Green Drinks Recap: Even Stevens Sandwiches

Blog by SLCgreen’s Laura Schmidt

This past Tuesday, Green Drinks gathered at Salt Lake City’s Even Stevens Sandwiches.

A Nice Autumn Evening

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.
