July Green Drinks – B Corps in Bend
September 3, 2019$65 – $75
Every other month, The Environmental Center and our Green Spot business partners host Green Drinks – a networking event with a mix of business and community members.
This month, we’ll be talking all about B Corporations. B Corps are companies using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems around the world. Oregon and California are leading the way both in the number of registered and certified B Corps. There are 51 of these companies in Oregon alone, and we’re bringing together two from Bend to share more about their B Corp journeys.
The event will be co-hosted by Moementum, innovators in leadership development and executive coaching, and Pacific Superfood Snacks, the brand behind nutritional kale chips born in the Pacific Northwest. The format of this event is designed to be interactive and to prompt participation in the discussion. We’ll divide into smaller groups to facilitate meaningful conversations with the B Corp teams, and to allow attendees to ask lots of questions. Come check out Pacific Superfood Snacks’ facility and learn from these amazing businesses! (222 SE Reed Market Rd., #500, Bend, OR 97702)
B Corps outperform other businesses, drive capital, create higher quality jobs and improve the quality of life in our communities. The B Corp certification process provides businesses with a means to continuously improve, while taking into account a broader spectrum of the communities, people and suppliers they touch.
Who is the event for?
Any business or person working to embed the principles of sustainability and/or the values of B Corps in their day-to-day operations.
Who will be there?
Business owners, staff, entrepreneurs and community members who are curious about what B Corps are all about.
Green Drinks is an international concept and is an enjoyable way to network, learn about local businesses and their sustainability efforts, and have an eco-conscious drink or two! Bring your own cup and consider carpooling, walking, biking or transit to get to the event!
