History

Green Drinks International started in London in 1989. Since, it has spread to cities across the UK, US, Canada, Germany, Poland, Sweden, the Netherlands, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Chile, Puerto Rico and Lebanon. As of September 2010, there are over 737 Green Drink Chapters worldwide. "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" (Green Drinks website). The best part about Green Drinks is that there is no structure, just good people meeting at a regular place and time. Visit the International Green Drinks website for more info: www.greendrinks.org.
