Since January 2011 I have organized and co-hosted monthly Green Drinks events to provide social networking opportunities for people interested in environmental and sustainability issues in Northwest Indiana. The meeting is usually held on the third Monday of each month at Cornucopia Coffee in Valparaiso, but is subject to change due to special events, speaker availability and/or conflicts with holidays. Please check the Green Drinks International site or our Facebook event page for details of upcoming events.
