Who We Are
San Francisco Green Drinks (SFGD) is a volunteer-run, non-profit organization that actively promotes green networking, education and volunteer events in the San Francisco Bay Area. SFGD’s mission is to be the eco-conscious hub, both on and offline, for local individuals, organizations, and businesses that aim to strengthen and support the local environmental and green community.
What We Do
Once a month San Francisco Green Drinks holds a large social networking event for several hundred green professionals at 111 Minna, a popular art gallery and bar just south of Market Street. A broad range of community partners, businesses and non-profits contribute to the event, enriching our community with their knowledge, opportunities and ongoing services. SFGD also utilizes and promotes online resources, such as a community event calendar and volunteer network, that strive to bring together sustainable thinkers with those looking to participate and take action.
San Francisco Green Drinks was founded in 2003 with the simple desire to provide a networking opportunity for environmental professionals. From entry-level job seekers to upper-level professionals, a diverse mixture of intelligent locals became the core attendees of SFGD. Average attendance has grown dramatically from 20 people in the early years to well over 300; we are now one of the largest monthly gatherings of green professionals in the country. This naturally evolving social phenomenon demonstrates the thirst for connection, knowledge, and opportunity that exists across the Green Drinks network
