Welcome to Virginia Beach Green Drinks!

DID YOU KNOW?

Melbourne is claiming the title of the world's biggest Green Drinks after staging an event on Friday 15th February 2008 that was attended by over 1,800 people!

For a city with a population of 4 million people, they plan to make the most of the bragging rights and challenge other cities to run a larger celebration of sustainability in 2008.

Virginia Beach Green Drinks brings together all seven cities of Hampton Roads who share a passion for our incomparable location on the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay.  Because of our beaches, our city's hospitality industry is the largest in Virginia. Tourism and agriculture are vital aspects of our economy while watermen, charter fishermen and weekends constitute an important component of our local culture.

Our mission is simple: to encourage sustainable philosophies to preserve the natural environment locals love and visitors return to year after year.

What is Green Drinks?
An informal happy hour held once a month for people who care about the environment. Worldwide, these monthly get-togethers provide an opportunity for a local sustainability community to socialize, network and learn from one another. This movement was born in 1989 in a London Pub by Edwin Datschefski and his environ-minded mates.

Green Drinks offers a great way of catching up with people you know and making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along so the crowd is always different, making Green Drinks a fluid, self- organizing network. These events are simple and unstructured with a lot of positive benefits. Attendees have found jobs, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals and had moments of serendipity. Invite your friends and be sure to carpool, ride your bike or walk.

Come join Virginia Beach's fastest growing environmentally aware community.
