SustainableSpiritsLogo Sustainable Spirits is a casual monthly gathering for the sustainability community organized by the North Carolina Composting Council.  It started on June 2013, and since then it has rotated around the [expanded] Triangle and the coast through different establishments creating a space for people to gather, meet each other, and engage in fun and meaningful conversations.  It’s free, unstructured, and open to everyone interested in anything from renewable energy and civic engagement to green building, organic farming, and beyond!  To learn about future ones please visit our event calendar or visit our Eventbrite page.  You can also join the LinkedIn group to keep in contact with other attendees.

Here’s a 2014 article from Raleigh & Company’s.
