Green Drinks incorporates all three pillars of sustainability: a healthy environment, economic vitality, and social equity. Topics and formats encompass a variety of culturally-relevant celebrations, book clubs, speaker series, videos highlighting local businesses, and the original networking-style event with business hosts. While the format and focus of Green Drinks has shifted over the past few years, the purpose remains the same: to bring people together to learn, discuss, and advance a sustainable future for everyone in Central Oregon.

Green Drinks events are free to attend but we welcome a donation of any amount which will help cover the cost of hiring a diverse lineup of speakers and hosting the event. With your donation, you join a network of members who share your value of local sustainability. Thank you!

July Green Drinks | High Desert Makers + Open Space Event Studios

Thursday, July 11 from 5-7pm
at Open Space Event Studios, 220 NE Lafayette Ave in Bend

Call for Green Makers of All Ages! Show and Tell (and sell). This particular Makers event is designed to give Makers of All Ages, who are dedicated to responsible environmental stewardship, a place to show and tell (and sell) what you make and why. There are creators of all ages out there who use materials that promote a circular economy, upcycle waste-stream-diverted materials, and re-imagine uses for existing materials. Some makers create music, stories, theater, performances, and other art that requires very few material things at all.

Green Drinks rotates to a new host business each time. Interested in hosting? Let’s chat! We typically hold Green Drinks on the second Thursday of the month, every other month, from 5-7pm. Please review the host guide and get in touch to inquire about available dates.
