September Green Drinks

September 3, 2019

$65 – $75


BECweek_logo_tag_date-1024x860This month, we’re combining Green Drinks with the kickoff of Bend Energy Challenge Week! Come check out the BEC Week Kickoff event at the new Habitat ReStore, featuring beer from Deschutes Brewery and food from Dump City Dumplings & Bend Soup Company. Come peruse information at various sponsor booths and check out all ReStore has to offer. Enjoy a humorous keynote address by Eric Corey Freed, the acclaimed speaker, architect and author of “Green Building & Remodeling for Dummies,” and hear what an illustrious group of local students are doing to ensure the future livability of Bend.

Aimed at both homeowners and professionals, in Eric’s talk: “The Seven Secrets of How Nature Designs: How to Apply the Lessons of Biomimicry to Your Business,” you’ll discover how the threat of climate change is already affecting your day to day life. You’ll uncover how to become a leader by leveraging the challenges of environmental responsibility. Instead of being a depressing talk on the environment, this hilarious talk will inspire you and transform how you look at the community around you.

Local high school students Kyra Kadhim, Skylar Grayson and Ivy Taylor, from the growing chapter of Youth Climate Action Now (YouCAN) in Bend, are intent on changing minds, hearts and city policies focused on two things: One, increasing City, community and student awareness about the seriousness of global climate change. Two, engaging both community members and local government in the development of lasting legal protection for the environment and quality of life in Central Oregon in the form of science-based carbon emission reduction targets and climate recovery planning. Listen to our kids and walk away inspired!


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!
