GREENS WANNA HAVE FUN TOO

Green Readers have been meeting like-minded folks from all over Tallahassee at the monthly Green Drinks Tallahassee. It's a fun way to meet, get to know each other, exchange business cards and hear some great information about resources in our community. The first meeting hosted Sweet Grass Dairy in Thomasville and we got to snack on some of this area's finest, tastiest goat and cow milk cheeses. Last month, we heard about events and fair trade products available at the Green Living Center and this month we learned about local recycling of byproducts of industrial production from Gene Jones of Southern Waste Information eXchange, Inc., who together with some folks from the Florida DEP and the Leon County's recycling guru, Cyndy Brantley, provided a powerhouse of information about waste exchange. Who knew putting recycled tire shreds into concrete makes the concrete many times stronger or that egg shells could be ground and added to strengthen ceramic tile?

The next Green Drinks will be Wednesday, June 25th at 6:00 pm at Waterworks on Thomasville Road. Check the Green Calendar for details when they become available. Thanks to Lela at Biological Research for organizing these events!
