When:  Thursday, September 26th from 6:30-8:30pm

Where:  Firehouse Grill, 750 Chicago Avenue, Evanston

What:  A chance to learn, network, and take action!

In case you’ve taken a stroll down Chicago Ave. or read the papers lately, you may have noticed that there is a brand new Walgreens facility currently under construction. And it plans to produce as much energy as it uses – if not more – thanks to its installation of wind turbines, solar panels, geothermal implements, LED lighting, green designs, and smart building materials, among other green aspects. This will be the first retail outlet in the U.S. to generate more energy than it produces over the course of a year! Want to learn about what it takes to build a net-zero building like Walgreens’? Then this is the Green Drinks for you!

Citizens for a Greener Evanston is pleased Walgreens chose to plant its building in Evanston and would like to invite you in giving them a warm welcome to the neighborhood this Thursday, September 26th from 6:30-8:30pm at Firehouse Grill located at 750 Chicago Ave (across the street from the Walgreens construction site!) Speakers will include Jamie Meyers, Walgreens’ Manager of Sustainability.
