Portland, Maine Greendrinks

 

Restore Yourself with February Greendrinks!  Habitat for Humanity Welcomes Greendrinkers!


Tired of looking for parking at Greendrinks events in the Old Port? Well you're in luck! This month's Greendrinks will be held at Habitat for Humanity's ReStore near Morrill's Corner (see map below for specifics).

Since 1985, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Portland has pursued its mission to eliminate poverty housing in the Greater Portland area. HFHGP uses local volunteer labor, along with donated materials and land whenever possible, to create simple, affordable and decent housing at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods. Homes are then sold to qualifying families through a no-interest 30-year loan.

Habitat’s ReStore supports this mission for affordable housing through the sale of discontinued, overstocked, and new and used building materials, such as flooring, windows, appliances, and much more. Manufacturers, stores, contractors and individuals donate these items, which are then either used in HFHGP construction or sold to the public at discounts of up to 50% to 80% off retail.

On Tuesday, February 10, come learn more about HFHGP’s move to sustainability with its green subdivision and LEED certified homes. Come meet some new people and while there, check out the ReStore to see what treasures you can find for your next building project. And remember to BYOV -- bring your own vessels!!!!

Check out the latest exciting opportunity to meet other Greendrinkers: Green Lunches, powered by Noonhat! Just submit your email by the Wednesday after Greendrinks every month and you'll get connected, via email, to up to three other Greendrinkers (randomly selected based on location) by Thursday morning. Green Lunches will take place every month on the Friday after Greendrinks. Once you've been matched, it will be up to you to select a lunch destination with your assigned partners.

BYOV!


In the spirit of being "green", we want to encourage all Greendrinkers to bring their own drinking vessel to all future Greendrinks.  One day we hope to offer "Portland Greendrinks" pint glasses for your drinking pleasure, but in the meantime, please do your part and help us to cut down on waste.
