Triton College Sustainability Center hosts first Green Drinks event

News Release


The Triton College Sustainability Center will host their inaugural Green Drinks program from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 2, with guest speaker Tom Stoner, a former energy entrepreneur who authored the book “Small Change, Big Gains: Reflections of an Energy Entrepreneur.”

Stoner will discuss how climate change mitigation is possible and will result in a more prosperous pathway to a sustainable future, as he answers such questions as:

  • Is the very nature of business in conflict with the environment?
  • To address climate change, will the United States have to incur a massive public bailout to transform our energy economy?
  • What are the top three calls to action for environmentally conscious college graduates?

Stoner is also the founder of Project Butterfly (, a research organization dedicated to finding business solutions to climate change.

The event is free and open to the public. It will take place in Room B-223 of the Student Center on Triton’s main campus in River Grove.

The event will also have a cash bar and hors d’oeuvres. For more information, contact Adrian Fisher at or Alexandra Dragin at

Green Drinks is an international network that encourages networking opportunities to discuss sustainability. This event is sponsored by the Triton College Sustainability Center and the Green Committee.
