The Best Part?
All funds raised at our events are given back to the community through Green Grants. We know there is a lot of creativity out there just waiting to be tapped, so if you’ve got a an idea to make our community more sustainable and wonderful, we’ve got $250 to $1000 to help make that it a reality.
Green Grants By You!
2015 - Bangor Area Homeless Shelter, $2,000
We provided a Green Grant to the Bangor Area Homeless Shelter to assist with purchasing an industrial-grade dishwasher. This purchase helps the shelter avoid 170,000 units of plastic dinnerware from entering the landfill each year while also saving about $5,000 in operating expenses each year for not having to purchase disposables.
2015 - Bangor Community Garden - $570
Bangor Greendrinks presented the Bangor Community Garden with $570 to purchase an electric lawnmower and string trimmer.
2015 - City of Bangor, $2,000
Bangor Greendrinks provided $2,000 to the City of Bangor to install two drinking fountains and bottle filling stations on the vibrant Bangor Waterfront.
