Sustainable Sips – Zed’s in Marlton

Join other Sustainability enthusiasts for networking and socializing at newly opened Zed‘s Beer on Tuesday October 24 at 6pm.  Zed’s is located at 19 North Maple Avenue, Marlton.  Zed‘s offers a great selection of beers and folks can order in from the Organico Pizza next door. Zed‘s Beer is “sustainably good.” They recycle their spent grains as food for local livestock, buy local ingredients whenever possible, and have an energy efficient brewing process.  At 7pm, we have ‘speed greening’ which is a great opportunity to meet and network with others in the room. We will supply free appetizers. Each participant pays for their own drinks and other food.  Free and open to the public.  For more information, contact Ila Vassallo at 856-465-3752 or email us  or our Facebook Event page.
