Crystal Lake Green Drinks

 

In McHenry County, the first Wednesday of each month is Green Wednesday!

Our next gathering is July 5, from 5PM - 7PM

Speaker: Jordan Parker - Founder, Bring Your Bag Chicago

Jordan Parker got her start as an environmental advocate in 1994, door-to-door canvassing for the USPIRG in Hawaii as a summer job in college. Nearly 20 years later, in 2013, she founded Bring Your Bag Chicago, a grassroots organization that encourages reusable bag use through public education and policy. The following year Jordan spent several weeks in Africa and Australia volunteering and learning about international efforts to address climate change. In 2016, after 5 years of work on Bring Your Bag Chicago, a citywide 7-cent bag tax was passed which resulted in a 42% reduction in disposable bag use during the first month of implementation. Jordan is now the Executive Director of Green City Campaigns, a 501(c)3 nonprofit created to support and mobilize waste reduction campaigns started by grassroots advocates in their own communities. 

 

Future programs:

August 3, 2017 - David Christensen, Director of MC Emergency Management Agency, will be speaking on Climate Disruption Preparedness based on the brand new McHenry County Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan. He'll focus on such things as protection of our watersheds in order to mitigate problems associated with droughts and flooding.


Join us at Duke's Alehouse & Kitchen, 110 N Main Street in Crystal Lake. Head upstairs at Duke’s for info and inspiration, business and pleasure. Come talk about “greening” the future with others. Must be 21 to purchase alcohol - non-alcoholic drinks are available, of course!

We have an information table set up, and you are welcome to bring information about your green products and services each month to share.
