Just when you thought our Monthly Mixer couldn't get any better, we're making it happen! Beginning in June, we'll combine our monthly networking event with Green Drinks Charlotte. We're all excited about this merger of the two events since we know it'll mean more chances for YOU to expand your network of new friends who care about sustainability! The format will remain similar and you'll still see all of the Sustain Charlotte staff and volunteers, but we'll also be joined by volunteers and current attendees of Green Drinks Charlotte.
We can't imagine a better opportunity to invite your friends, family, and colleagues to our new event! Stay tuned to our social media (Facebook and Twitter) and your email for an announcement about the date and location of the next mixer.
More than 45 people came to mingle and to hear what we're working on!

Over 50 sustainability enthusiasts from throughout the Greater Charlotte area gathered at Triple C Brewing on Tuesday evening to network and celebrate the success of our Transportation Choices Alliance’s Sustainable Commute Challenge.
During the month-long challenge, over 100 photos were submitted by area residents who walked, biked, or rode transit to their daily destinations. As the photos were shared by contestants, they drew thousands of ‘Likes’ and hundreds of new followers to the TCA's Facebook page. The challenge also initiated dozens of conversations among sustainable commuters, many of whom had never met in person.
