Green Drinks: October 5

Posted by Trish Riley, October 4, 2011

Greetings Green Drinkers!

The cool air is helping to stir up some fun… come join us!

Green Drinks will be hosted by The Midnight Cafe and Bar, 6 – 8 p.m., October 5. Beverley Webb, owner of The Midnight, will tell us about their efforts to be sustainable, and we hope that Chris Cano of Gainesville Compost will be able to join her in telling about a neat new compost-to-garden project they’re working together on.

The meeting will be sponsored by Florida Express, a commercial recycling service that has recently expanded operations from Ocala to include services and offices in Gainesville. Florida Express is the first commercial recycling service to bring single stream recycling to area businesses – this means that businesses can chuck all recyclables into one receptacle; Florida Express will handle sorting and sending materials to the appropriate recycling facility, saving businesses time and money. Learn more about Florida Express from owner Chris Boyd at Green Drinks, October 5, 6 – 8 p.m. at The Midnight Cafe and Bar, 233 South Main Street in Downtown Gainesville. See you there!
