Anyone for green networking?

treeWhile we were both volunteering at the Chicago Green Festival this weekend, we met lots of local green businesses. It got us thinking… since we ourselves make efforts to be green in our businesses, why not plan a green Neighborhood Networking event so that other like-minded businesses can connect.

Details are still in the works, but if any green businesses are interested in this type of event, please email us. We can tell you about opportunities for you to promote your business though a sponsorship (which include a table at the event and inclusion in all our promotional efforts), a raffle prize donation or by hosting the event. We look forward to hearing from you to help us plan this exciting event!
