Green Drinks in New Westminster - Wednesday, June 3rd

From: Matthew Laird
New Westminster Environmental Partners

REMINDER: Green Drinks in New Westminster this Wednesday, June 3rd

Drop by New Westminster's monthly Green Drinks Sustainability Discussion at The Heritage Grill in the newly renovated Back Room!

Green Drinks is a monthly gathering of sustainability professionals and others who are interested in discussing environmental and sustainability issues over their favorite drink, whether that be a
pint of beer, fruit smoothie or Green Drink! The Green Drinks movement began in the UK in 1989 and over the years has spread worldwide, coming to Canada in 2005.

Originally oriented towards just environmental professionals, participants now also represent all ages, backgrounds and group affiliations, including non-profit organizations, academia, government,
small business, big business, the self-employed, volunteers, students, concerned citizens... and everything in between.

There's no agenda or formality at the gatherings – only the opportunity to meet to chat, debate, socialize and connect with others in the Burnaby/New Westminster, Tri-Cities and Surrey areas who are passionate about environmental and sustainability issues. Whether the subject is
green buildings, sustainable energy, organic gardening, or something else entirely, participants are likely to find some expertise in the room.

New Westminster Green Drinks are held every 1st Wednesday of the month at
The Heritage Grill
447 Columbia Street, New Westminster

5:45–8 p.m.

The Heritage Grill is half a block from the Columbia Skytrain Station, with bike racks nearby for cyclists.
