JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (May 13, 2022) – Today, the North Florida Green Chamber of Commerce announced its inaugural Green Drinks Summer Series beginning Thursday, June 16 at the Cobalt Moon Center and next door at Sliders Bar and Grill in Neptune Beach.
“We are excited to launch this series in an informal summertime get-together for anyone interested in environmental issues and sustainability to connect in a fun and casual setting,” said Green Chamber Executive Director Christina Kelcourse Esq, CFP, CRPC. “We have a great topic and venue.”
Following a presentation on Biomimicry at 4 p.m. at the Cobalt Moon Center, the event moves next door at 5 p.m. to Sliders Bar and Grill, Jacksonville’s first Ocean Friendly Restaurant, for the Green Drinks social. The Green Drinks Summer Series is scheduled for June 16, July 21, and August 25.
Series topics will include using Biomimicry to create sustainable products, to design new business practices and using Biomimicry and Bio-utilization to clean up waste.
Integrative Bioscientist Jessica Tittl of BiomeFuture, an innovation company dedicated to applying the knowledge and power of nature to the development of sustainable products and systems, will be the presenter.
“Our summer series is focused on Biomimicry, and we have invited a subject matter expert in Jessica. This helps get the local conversation going and offers the opportunity to learn about Biomimicry and engage in meaningful dialogue followed by a chance to catch up with friends, meet new contacts and network with like-minded people to promote sustainability,” said Green Chamber Chairman Dolly Penland.
Green Drinks partners include the North Florida Land Trust, Environmental Protection Board, Jax Global Shapers, St. Johns River Keepers, Surfrider, Beaches Go Green and the Florida Green Building Coalition. Natural Awakenings and Folio/EU are media sponsors.
