Bring a brown bag, learn about green

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:, , , , ,

Once a month, the city’s “green team” hosts a brown bag lunch session to offer advice, tips and information about how businesses and individuals can go green and save money.

In the second of the series, the team has invited guest speakers from Colorado Springs Utilities to offer ideas about how to save money through rebates and energy and water conservation.

This month’s meeting is scheduled from 12:11 to 12:49 p.m. March 11 at the city administration building, 30 S. Nevada Ave., suite 102. Bring a lunch and learn how to save money on those utility costs.

The city will also sponsor a drawing for a tote bag, made from downtown recycled banners, at the meeting.

Upcoming “green” bag lunch-n-learns later in the year include:
