On Nov 2nd, we'll be celebrating the amazing work Edmonton's business community has in making our region a more sustainable and vibrant place to live and work. These are the businesses that set an example for others, either through ethical practices, being good community members, or just helping make this city of ours a better place.
Come meet and connect with some of Edmonton's leading figures & thinkers in local business and learn what strange and wonderful things can come from local business done well.
Anna Davidson (@planetanna) is an entrepreneur, co-op member, stage manager, knitter & yarn spinner. With a team of awesome women, she co-founded the Alberta Yarn Project (@ABYarnProject) in 2014 and the Made Local Society (@madelocalhouse) this past summer. Anna is passionate about creating: community, warm garments and stories. She is committed to building up Edmonton by supporting artists, small businesses and working co-operatively.
Annie Parent from habitat etc (@habitatetc) as one of our featured guests this October! Habitat etc is a friendly lifestyle store that carries home goods, accessories, paper goods and gifts. They provide unique, local, handmade, high quality and artisanal products to customers.
Adam Yereniuk, Operations Manager at Kuby Renewable Energy LTD. (@kubyenergy) creates solar energy solutions for homes and businesses through professional designs and master workmanship. They strive to build lasting partnerships with everyone we serve by providing elite service and never sacrificing quality.
Carmen Douville (@CarmenDouville) is a designer, urbanist, and geographer. What she enjoys most is engaging with people and making things happen in Edmonton. Currently, she is the Community Manager for Make Something Edmonton (@makeityeg) and Program Manager for Edmonton Made. She has engaged with others through We Are Cities, Tete Jaune Design Show, Placemaking Challenge, LIVINGbridge, Bench Talks, and Atelier: Design by Doing. She holds a Masters Degree from the University of Edinburgh in Environment, Culture and Society, where her research focused on how places and people relate to public urban objects. Along with three partners, Carmen founded Loyal Loot Collective, an internationally recognized furniture and accessories company.
Coco Lillycrop and Zeph Mitchell from Carbon Environmental Boutique (@carbonboutique) offers only sustainable, ethical, non toxic and, whenever possible, local goods. They screen every product to ensure it adheres to the highest environmental standards, make sure people LOVE their products, and introduce people to a greener, more conscious lifestyle.
Joey Hundert (@joeyhundert) will join us on November 2 for Green Drinks: Good Business. He's the Founder/CEO of Sustainival, the world's first green carnival. What better fit than a young entrepreneur singly-focused on sustainability?
Tickets: $10 in advance. $15 at the door (cash only - ATM on premises).
WHAT IS GREEN DRINKS?
Every month people who work in the environmental field meet up at informal sessions known as Green Drinks.
We have a lively mixture of people from NGOs, academia, government and business. Come along and you'll be made welcome. Just say, "are you green?" and we will look after you and introduce you to whoever is there. It's a great way of catching up with people you know and also for making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there’s always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, self-organising network.
These events are very simple and unstructured, but many people have found employment, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals and had moments of serendipity. It's a force for the good and we'd like to help it spread to other cities. Contact your local node to get the latest info about coming along.
Please note that attendance is at the discretion of The Local Good.
