REAP First Thursday: Green Business Networking

March 5, 2009 - 9:00pm to 11:00pm
Join REAP Members and other business owners/operators on the first Thursday of each month for a green business networking event. It's an informal gathering where people running environmentally and socially responsible businesses can come to have a drink, meet new people and share ideas about sustainable business.

There is no cost to attend. Just show up, participate and buy your own drinks.

Ross Hahn (CEO) and Tim Neis (VP) of SwizzleSticks SalonSpa will be there. They welcome the opportunity to chat with you about how SwizzleSticks SalonSpa is making a difference in the Calgary community and how you might be able to collaborate. Here are just some of the reasons why SwizzleSticks SalonSpa is in our member spotlight this month:
  • Tim and Ross have always felt that respecting the earth and its' inhabitants was the only right answer for business. Long before it was fashionable, they sought out partners, like Aveda, to help them build the business responsibly.
  • Their vision is to demonstrate to guests and other businesses that you can have a profitable business model while showing leadership in environmental and humanitarian issues.
  • SwizzleSticks SalonSpa became a Founding Member of REAP to network with like-minded local businesses that are interested in sustainability. It wants our collective momentum to continue to grow so that we can all show Calgary that being green isn't a fad, it's an achievable lifestyle.
  • SwizzleSticks SalonSpa can help other businesses evaluate their current suppliers and identify greener partners. For example, it recently switched to Canon photocopiers because research showed that Canon had the strongest sustainability mandate. SwizzleSticks SalonSpa chooses partners based not just on their end product, but on the whole philosophy of the company.
  • Ross and Tim are looking for help with composting for the staff lunch room.
Come meet them and other business leaders on March 5 and see how together we are building a more sustainable city.
