The farmers’ market isn’t the only thing green this Tuesday. Two organizations are spending their Tuesdays promoting eco and social awareness tonight, with Design Within Reach hosting Green Living with Blu Homes, and LoaTree welcoming Geoff Green from Fund for Santa Barbara to their Santa Barbara Green Drinks event.
Design Within Reach, a modern design store on State Street, introduces the public to Blu Homes, a company specializing in creating easily built and shipped eco-friendly homes. These pop-up homes, amazingly constructed so that they can fold up to be shipped all over, are affordable, LEED-certified and super chic. Representatives from Blu Homes will provide insight into their customizable, modern homes, discussing everything from their environmentally friendly use of steel and wood and their incredible computer software that allows them to map out models of these foldable homes. Questions are encouraged, and a brief design lesson will leave you wishing you could snatch up everything in the shop. Green Living goes from 5—8 p.m., with cocktails and appetizers circulating. Interested? RSVP to email@example.com.
Down in the Funk Zone, Municipal Winemakers opens its doors for the first Green Drinks event of the year. Geoff Green comes to play with the latest news on the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and Fund for Santa Barbara‘s Social Justice Award for Documentary Film, a prestigious honor awarded to a film striving to contribute to the advancement of social justice. To see what films are nominated and read more info on the award, head here. Green Drinks runs from 6—8 p.m.
Hit the farmers’ market and keep up the green vibe by finishing your Tuesday night at one of these events. Mother Nature will approve.
