St. Patrick’s Day is time for Green Drinks
Green Drinks is not usually a group that gathers to drink green beer. But on St. Patrick’s Day in some Canadian cities, your drink can be as green as your politics.
Founded in the UK nearly two decades ago, Green Drinks is a monthly get-together for people who are interested in sustainability issues.
Many members work in the environmental arena (and use the group as a networking opportunity), but many simply enjoy meeting and chatting with other folks who are concerned about green issues.
As the Toronto chapter says, they’re “Saving the World, One Sip at a Time.”
There are Green Drinks chapters in nearly 50 countries and in all the major Canadian cities.
Here’s the St. Patrick’s Day Green Drinks lineup at several locales across Canada:
Many other Canadian cities — including Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton, Halifax, Ottawa, Kitchener-Waterloo, and London (ON) — have active Green Drinks groups, even if they’re not having a St. Patrick’s Day get-together.
