Greendrinks.org describes itself as an organic, self-organising network of people interested in green living and/or who work in the environmental field. It’s a great place to meet people who view the environment the way you do. I’ve attended the Newlands meet-up at Josephine Mill before, and met a guy who builds wind turbines in his backyard, an alternative energy expert, composting toilet specialist, artist, blogger and architect. Everyone talks about saving the planet and practical ways that they’re doing their bit.
This Tuesday, 13th July, I’m going to be joining artist Janet Botes to launch ecojunki at the Atlantic Seaboard Greendrinks Meet-up. We’ll be showing some of our own recycled art and crafts, and inviting Greendrink-ers to bring along their own recyclables for a demonstration/have-a-go.
If you’re in Cape Town and want to come along, here are the details:
