Sustainable Jersey City Hosts Entertaining Eco-Meetups T


he Sustainable Jersey City Green Drinks + Art Meetup brings eco-minded individuals together from 6 to 9 p.m. on the third Thursday of every month at the Hudson County Community College Culinary Conference Center to enjoy some downtime within a friendly community. In addition to workshop and demonstration projects, the entertainment evenings offer locally sourced food and beverages and an opportunity to learn something about sustainability in Jersey City.


The meetups began in June 2012, with outdoor patio party gatherings at


Journal Square. Introducing a steady stream of eco-sensitive musicians and artists is part of the organization’s How to Green Your Neighborhood education mission. Sustainable Jersey City’s goals are to conceive, plan and implement sustainability-related projects across various wards of the city; empower groups and individuals to become successful citizen activists on behalf of their own neighborhoods; and inspire a wave of regenerative thinking and cultural change to address today’s global challenges.


Cost: $10/person. Location: 161 Newkirk St., Bldg. E, Jersey City. Register at Meetup.com/Sustainable-Jersey_City. For more information, email Info@SustainableJC.com or visit SustainableJC.org.
