OMG, More Green: EcoTuesday Begins Tonight

There's Green Business Networking, there's LA Green Drinks and now there is EcoTuesday beginning tonight. Simply put, the monthly event works like this: eco-minded people gather at a bar or restaurant, introduce themselves, listen to a guest speaker and then mingle and network. Tonight's speaker is John McPherson, director of Green Depot, a Santa Monica based non-profit that promotes the use of sustainable energy.

Tonight's event takes place at Citrus at Social from 7 to 10 p.m. and is usually $10-20, but tonight's inaugural event is free. So far, tonight's attendee list includes representatives from the Coalition for Clean Air, Conscious River, Eco Gift Expo and many other organizations. EcoTuesday started in San Francisco in 2007 and is spreading to many other cities across the country.
