Looking for clothing with conviction?  Sustainable style with sense?  Apparel with altruism?  Join SLO Green Drinks and HumanKind Fair Trade for the Eco Fashion Show on Thursday, May 31 at the Steynberg Gallery (1531 Monterey St) from 6-9pm.  The event will feature attire from local retailers, including HumaKind Fair Trade, Hemp Shak, Curio, Nekkidd and yours truly, Bambu Batu! Mingle with your fellow fashionistas as you watch the night’s lineup of dance and music performances, take part in the silent auction, and grab a drink or a bite to eat from the cafe.  All proceeds will benefit HumanKind Fair Trade, a non-profit store that provides vital income for artisans and farmers in the developing world.

Tickets are $10 presale (available at Steynberg and HumanKind) or $15 at the door.  See you by the runway!

This Tuesday, March 13th, come join fellow environmentally conscious members of the community for another installment of SLO Green Drinks at the Steynberg Gallery from 6-8pm.  Bring your questions and comments for the keynote speaker,  Mike di Milo from SLO Integrated Waste Management, as well as a donation (suggested $6) to benefit GleanSLO.  The event is a part of a series of forums held bi-monthly on the Central Coast designed to engage the public with members from the NGO’s, academic institutions, government, and businesses, all with the concept of sustainability in mind.  San Luis Obispo is one of many chapters operating around the world, and while informal, has proven to be a fantastic place to establish meaningful connections, find employment, and brainstorm projects.

Every host of the Green Drinks soirees follows a loose framework of rules that emphasize flexibility, inclusiveness, and agenda-free discussion.  Each venue should be easily accessible, simple to replicate on a regular basis, and most importantly, fun.  San Luis Obispo’s branch of Green Drinks is headed by Alison Cebulla, an activist, planner, and social media expert.  Having focused her studies on the issues of fair trade, cooperative farming, sustainable agriculture and nutrition, Cebulla is well-versed in working with social justice and environmental advocates.  She has created  lively, entertaining, and informative get-togethers that are are certainly worth checking out!
