Making all the right environmental choices can seem difficult, but knowing that it often saves money in the long term, if not immediately, makes things easier. One of my many bookmarked pages is The Simple Dollar's run-down of 42 green ways to save money and reduce carbon emissions. But it's a lot more fun to talk about such matters with like-minded people, which is just what green drinks Denver does each month. The event is informal, and the drinks and networking are complemented with a themed talk. February's topic is "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" and will address what we consume and which items are most likely to pollute the Earth after we throw them away. In the spirit of keeping us even further connected and informed, green drinks Denver has a blog that links to local environmental stories, as well as other eco-themed events around town. The next gathering is tonight at 6 p.m. at Double Daughter's. Future meetings happen the last Thursday of every month at 6 p.m.
