Green Drinks Ottawa and SMARTNet Alliance Presents
SHOP LOCAL, BUY LOCAL – a Special Holiday Edition
As the holidays creep closer, it’s easy to be lured by big box stores to help get us through our ‘to-do, to buy’ lists as quickly as possible. Believe us, we get it. Checking off your list in one fell swoop is satisfying and, let’s face it, one less thing to stress about.
This year, we encourage you to think outside the big box. Get out into the community and explore the city’s numerous unique and independently-owned businesses. Ottawa is home to a wide range of talented artisans, organic farms, sustainably-sourced products, and many other socially-responsible businesses. Feel good about discovering that one-of-a-kind gift while supporting your local, and global, community.
Need some ideas to get you started? No problem. We’ve rounded up a panel of four local entrepreneurs and businesses that embody social and environmental responsibility. Find out why they’ve chosen to do business the way they do, what they have to offer, and how your support helps.
Come out and meet our panelists:
- Steve Hubbard, Co-owner, Lightenco
- Darcy Whyte, Artist, InventorArtist
- Andrew Bassett, Co-owner, Little Victories Coffee
- Matt Dudley, Owner, Ottawa Organics
This month’s Green Drinks Ottawa is combined with SMARTNet Alliance’s Holiday Celebration. Join us for a fun, yet informal evening of socializing with Ottawa’s green community.
Appetizers are compliments of SMARTNet Alliance. And don’t miss the prize draw for some great ‘green’ gifts! Each person will receive 5 draw tickets towards the prizes.
This holiday season, gift more thoughtfully!
