April 6, 2012. The April 10 meeting of Green Drinks Boone will focus on the various Earth Day events that are scheduled throughout April in the High Country. On April 22, more than one billion people around the globe will participate in Earth Day 2012 celebrating the 42nd annual Earth Day and a number of organizations around the area have events and activities planned. At Green Drinks Boone we will provide an opportunity for those hosting events to promote their activity and provide details on how others can participate. This meeting will be more open with plenty of time to make a quick presentation on what is taking place during the month. It is also a great time to celebrate our success with various green initiatives.
The Earth Day Network, an international organization, is asking everyone to attend a local Earth Day event and join local Earth Day campaigns as they collect A Billion Acts of Green® and elevate the importance of environmental issues around the world. Their motto is Together we will Mobilize the Earth™ on April 22 and demand change.
The Tuesday evening event will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Pepper’s Restaurant, located in the Shops at Shadowline in Boone.
Green Drinks Boone is an informal social networking organization that hosts monthly events for anyone interested in “green” activities in the High Country. It’s a great way to catch up with local people involved in “green” services and make new “green” contacts. Green Drinks Boone is among 15 other North Carolina communities and 825 cities worldwide that host monthly gatherings of sustainably-minded people who meet to informally discuss green business, green services and green activities.
Green Drinks Boone gatherings are free and open to the public. Participants cover their own cost of beverages and food. The slogan of the International Green Drinks organization is “Saving the World One Sip at a Time.”
Green Drinks offers a great way of catching up with people you know and making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along so the crowd is always different, making Green Drinks a fluid, self- organizing network. These events are simple and unstructured with a lot of positive benefits.
Green Drinks Boone meets on the second Tuesday of the month and they invite interested people to join them on FACEBOOK at Green Drinks Boone to receive future updates. Join the group on Tuesday, April 10, at Pepper’s Restaurant from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. to learn more about the opportunities to join in area Earth Day activities and show how we are Green.
