Why is Cleveland Green Drinks back?
"Recognizing the need for sustainability professionals and those passionate about sustainability to get together on a regular basis, we are proud to announce the re-birth of Cleveland Green Drinks. Our goal is to provide a space that welcomes both practitioners and those interested in sustainability with the sole purpose of networking and socializing. We will not have any programming and this is intentional. Please join us to refresh and learn what others are doing to build a sustainable economy in NE Ohio." - Beau Daane

What is Cleveland Green Drinks?
Cleveland Green Drinks Mission: To provide a gathering for Northeast Ohio's leaders to share their passion for sustainability, make connections for strategic collaboration, broaden personal networks and socialize!
Who we are: Cleveland Green Drinks is a social event where emerging and established community leaders network and link ideas to create a concentrated effort of positive change in our region. Lyndy Rutkowski founded Cleveland Green Drinks in 2004 to create a monthly event for sustainability-conscious community members to socialize and network. Lyndy and North Union Farmers Market are proud to collaborate on Cleveland Green Drinks going forward.
What we do: Every few months Cleveland Green Drinks meets at locally-owned restaurants in and around Cleveland. Our gathering is an opportunity to socialize with other interesting and involved individuals while enjoying fantastic food & drink. Sharing of ideas, networking, and plans for collaboration naturally occur - but is not forced.
Cleveland Green Drinks and the local economy: Cleveland Green Drinks supports the local economy because we solely meet at locally owned establishments; cycling cash back into the pockets of local chefs, farmers, brewers, and artisans. Get involved with Cleveland's Green Drinks group and you will soon find yourself amongst insightful, well connected, and fun loving professionals that can't help but integrate their passion for their work in every aspect of their lives!
