About GreenDrinks - Naperville:
Every month people across the globe who are interested in environmental issues meet up at informal sessions known as GreenDrinks. GreenDrinks - Naperville, which was founded in February 2010, is just one of 800+ of these chapters worldwide. It's a lively mixture of people from business, NGOs, academia, our community and government. Come along and you'll be made welcome-TEETOTALERS TOO. It's a great way of catching up with people you know and also for making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there's always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, ever expanding network. These events are very casual, and food and drink are on your own. There is no fee to participate. We meet the last Wednesday of every month, be sure to check the webpage for location: . We are a green social networking event in every sense - 'self-organizing' and 'organically-growing' - so spread the word and see you at the next GreenDrinks - Naperville!
