HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
LA Green Drinkers!
2006 will be known as the year "Green Went Mainstream"
Katrina outrage, Fuel Prices, Energy Dependence, and the 3rd highest grossing documentary in history detailing a certain "Inconvenient Truth" has opened the minds of Americans to our urgent environmental issues. Let's help make 2007 the year Los Angelinos come together and start making LA a truly Sustainable City.
The last meeting in Culver City had over 80 people with dozens of newcomers joining the regulars-what a great turnout! The co-founder of the Philadelphia Green Drinks, Anthony Guido, will be joining us this Thursday and will be looking for suggestions to take back East. Please feel free to share any thoughts on what you think about LA Green Drinks!
