Fifteen Trees, a Ballarat company specialising in carbon offsetting, will plant a tree for every person who attends the Ballarat Green Drinks on World Environment Day.
To be held from 6pm at the Rebellion Brewery, the session brings like-minded people together for debate and discussion of green issues.
Event founder Micah Denmert said it was a chance for Ballarat residents to hear about local, national and global environmental issues, while enjoying a drink.
“It’s pretty much the only regular event in Ballarat where you can hear about heirloom vegetables, Cambodian charities, and ecosystem economics in the one room,” Mr Demmert said.
“What started as a small idea four months ago has grown into a highly anticipated event on the Ballarat social calender.”
Fifteen Trees founder Colleen Filippa, who is a regular at the event, said it was a fantastic venue for sharing ideas.
“The environment is important to all of us,” Ms Filippa said.
“Just by participating at the drinks, people will have a chance to have a lasting reminder of their commitment to the environment.”“The trees will be planted locally.
