WHAT’S NEW IN 2022!

CGD has been on hiatus during the pandemic but this year, we are exited to be hosting events again with renewed energy and a commitment to making Green Drinks better than ever.

The steering committee is working to improve our communications, streamline our processes and make CGD more equitable, just to name a few areas of focus this year.

Grow Purpose will now serve as the central point of connection and information for Green Drinks, in conjunction with our CGD Facebook & CDG Instagram accounts

We also agreed to integrate the UN’s sustainable development goals more explicitly into our work.
