So Greendrinks had a fab 5th anniversary party last week. There was a ton of food and even more to drink (Sierra Nevada debuted their new Monorail Ale, and longtime blog readers will know how delighted I am about this; click here to read my last monorail-related post).
There were also lots of great booths with info from local green companies. But most important, there were so many people there committed to making changes in their lives that would have a positive impact on the environment.
Throughout the night Barbie Hull, Martin Colette and I had the pleasure of taking photos of people who had decided to change one thing in their lives that would help the environment. We took a portrait of each person with their “one thing” written on a chalkboard.
And through some cool computer action involving flickr and some code whipped up by the Greendrinks folks, those photos were streamed in a slideshow projected onto the wall in the main room of the party. That way everyone could see each others’ commitments and be inspired to create their own. You can check the rest of these “one thing” photos right here.
It was a great party bringing together people (including Transitman, above) and companies committed to doing right by the environment. What an inspiring night! I can’t wait to see what Greendrinks does next.
