Green Drinks, the Lehigh Valley’s premier green networking event, will meet at the Allentown Brew Works on from, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., April 11, at Fegley’s Allentown Brew Works. The meeting begins with networking to meet others interested in sustainability, followed by a program, Using LANta to Lower Your Carbon Footprint, at 6:15 p.m.
This meeting will be of interest to those interested in protecting the environment, but not sure how public transportation factors in. “Public transportation reduces the number of cars on the street and thus helps improve air quality, alleviate traffic congestion and noise,” say Federal Transit Administration officials. To learn more about the future of LANta in our region, LANta board member Kim Schaffer and Executive Director Owen O’Neill will explain how the Lehigh Valley public transportation system is evolving, and how the changes can benefit the community.
Location: 812 Hamilton St., Allentown. For more information, call Lehigh Valley Sustainability Network President Andrea Wittchen at 610-730-8246 or visit lvsustain.org.
