EcoTuesday Turns One Year Old

EcoTuesday

This month was the one year anniversary of EcoTuesday! EcoTuesday is by far my favorite green event every month. They draw quite a diverse and large crowd, have great speakers, and the networking format is brilliant.

At this event, I was able to meet many green industry people. One such individual, is the owner of GenExe, Alex Ho, who writes blogs about the green industry and takes photography of events. One of the great things about the green industry is their willingness to collaborate instead of compete. Alex beat me to the puch at creating a blog about EcoTuesday, so he allowed me to cross-post his great blog article below:

If you don’t know what EcoTuesday is, it is a monthly mixer event that started in San Francisco and takes place at a different place every month with a special speaker with experience in the Green industry. The event has also spread to Seattle, Minneapolis, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. This month’s EcoTuesday took place at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel and featured Emily Miggins, a Sustainability Consultant who specializes in corporate zero waste strategies. Emily works at SAIC as an environmental scientist working on projects involving government and private sector partners. As usual, the events draw a great crowd of people from different industries who either work or are interested in the green industry.

After the presentation is given, the people in audience at EcoTuesday always gather around in one, two or three circles where everyone introduces themselves, what they do, and what they are passionate about. This month, the room gathered in one big circle but it is good to hear from everyone in the room because it gives people a good way to approach someone else about an interest or topic that they want to discuss more about.
