Green Drinks is a casual, monthly networking event for anyone. Some attendees work in the environmental industry, most practice sustainable lifestyles and all are “green curious.” Everyone comes for different reasons because everyone is invited. Please join us to add to the conversation and impact of this dynamic group of people who make Green Drinks a keystone in Columbus'  eco-conscious culture.

About Green Drinks

Founded by Edwin Datschefski in London, England in 1989, Green Drinks is an organic, self-organizing network currently active in over 700 cities around the globe.

The format is casual networking followed by a short eco-presentation, followed by self-directed hang out. Green Drinks enables participants to share new ideas, develop inspired solutions, join the discussion, learn about opportunities to work for change and make a difference; participants make the event into what they want.
