REAP First Thursday: Meet Green Business Leaders

April 2, 2009 - 8:00pm to 10:00pm

Looking to meet green business leaders in the Calgary area?

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.

Chris Hampton, Founder and CEO of Namaste Messenger will be there. He welcomes the opportunity to chat with you about how Namaste Messenger is making a difference in the Calgary community and how you might be able to collaborate. Here are just some of the reasons why Namaste Messenger is in our member spotlight this month:

  • Chris' vision for sustainable business is unity. He wants to see humanity reach its full potential and live in harmony with the earth. By aligning business practices with ecological needs he believes we can make this happen.
  • Chris founded Namaste Messenger because he realized the time had come to roll up his sleeves and build a more sustainable business structure than he could find working for someone else.
  • Namaste Messenger would like to accomplish two main things in partnering with REAP: provide support, connectivity and collaboration throughout the sustainable community; and expand its abilities to be sustainable within the community - becoming the leader in ecologically responsible shipping.
  • Namaste Messenger would like to be the strongest example that "sustainable" means more than simply ecological choices. It means social, human and personal choices as well. Namaste Messenger has reached out to the community and wants to bring its messages of sustainable prosperity to the world.
  • Chris would like help bring change to the shipping industry. His company has the vision and skills, but it needs a hand in sourcing the best alternative fuel sources, low to no emission vehicles, ecologically sound office supplies and more.
  • Namaste Messenger would like to become part of your sustainable supply chain and so extends this offer to REAP subscribers: One Free Superhero(ASAP) delivery service and an additional 10% off of National & International overnight shipping for 7 weeks, when you open your new shipping account with Namaste Messenger Inc. REAP Members also qualify for a permanent discount based on their volume.

Come meet Chris and other business leaders on April 2 and see how together we are building a more sustainable city.
