Next Green Drinks is

April 27, 2020 





We're social distancing, but staying connected!

We're here and we're open - just virtually!  All Sustainable Tallahassee meetings are being conducted virtually or as conference calls until at least April 6th. If you are a member of one of our committees, please be on the lookout for an email from your committee chair regarding virtual/call-in information. This month’s Green Drinks will be a Facebook Live event. Join us at 6 pm at www.Facebook.com/sustainabletallahassee. Need to get in touch?  Phone and email are at the bottom of this page.

While we are in "stay-at-home" mode, keeping us current with up-to-date local information and resources is the Leon County Emergency Information Portal.


Please join us to support our local small businesses and restaurants

Local restaurants, small businesses, and local farmers operate on small margins. So here are things you can do to help during this challenging period:

  1. Buy a gift certificate (or get it online if possible), directly from the business so they get the use of your money for a month or two. Then when things have settled down, treat your sweetie to an evening out and use your certificate!  If your favorite businesses are temporarily not accessible, check for them on the Keep Tally Connected site to purchase a gift card. 
  2. Order takeout from your favorite restaurants; this map lists the status of many.
  3. Shop our many local outdoor farmers' markets where you can keep your physical distance!  
  4. Order fresh farm goods online at Red Hills Online Market, which has added a delivery option during this period!  

Do you have other innovative ways we can support our local businesses?  Email us at admin@sustainabletallahassee.org and we'll publicize your suggestions.

If we all support our local farmers, restaurants, and local businesses, after this crisis is over they will be there to welcome us back!


Our Rags2Bags Team is Making Face Masks - and You Can Help!


Our Rags2Bags team is pivoting temporarily from making reusable shopping bags to making fabric face masks.  We invite you to join us!

Here's how you can make face masks while socially distancing in your own home:

  1. You can access the pattern & directions HERE.
  2. Or, you can drop by and pick up a kit all ready to make.
  3. Then simply drop off your completed masks.

The pick-up / drop-off time and place is:
Every Thursday from 11 am to 2 pm, at Faith Presbyterian Church, in the parking lot next to the Church Office, 2200 North Meridian Street.

You can drop off without needing to leave your car. We will distribute to the agencies who have made requests for 1,000+, and we'll continue as long as this need exists!
