Green Drinks is an international movement that began at least a decade ago and is now held internationally. Volunteers organize a venue, advertise the gathering (normally monthly) and often feature a short speaker on a sustainable topic from the business or nonprofit sector. Fredericks Green Drinks was started around 2010 by Rich Maranto,whose website, Maryland Goes Green, to highlight solar energy projects in Maryland. After several successful years, Green Drinks Frederick took a break until it was restarted in 2018 by a coalition of Maryland Goes Green, Green Frederick.org, Community F.A.R.E. and Envision Frederick County. Having gone through two seasons of events, the group continues on with plans for new venues and new topics for 2019!
