On Tuesday, Salt Lake City Green Drinks joined forces with SLCgreen’s e2 Business Program to host an evening of delicious food, refreshing drinks and amazing networking among SLC’s sustainability community at Local First Utah.
Peter Nelson with SLCgreen’s e2 business program welcomed the group to SLC Green Drinks and talked about how the e2 Business program helps businesses pave the way towards more sustainable practices. Learn more.
The group noshed on delicious food from Mazza Middle Eastern Cuisine and enjoyed beverages from both Epic Brewing Company and Uinta Brewing (all Salt Lake City e2 businesses!)
Local First Utah generously donated their space, located in the heart of the Central Ninth Business District, for the event. Thanks to everyone who attended!
