This Friday, during the monthly Greenwood-Phinney art walk, the neighborhood will host an Agent Green event, sponsored by Seattle Green Drinks and the Greenwood-Phinney Chamber of Commerce.

Agent Green is an organized culture mob that works to bring Seattle residents into the neighborhood to use their collective purchasing power to support neighborhood businesses that promise to dedicate 25% of their sales from the day towards energy and water efficiency retrofitting.

This event honors six pilot businesses in particular, the first to participate in the chamber’s Green Smart Sustainable Business Program. This new program is designed to help neighborhood businesses reduce their carbon footprint and improve their overall sustainability.

Join the fun at Gainsbourg Lounge from 6:00 – 10:00pm as the main event headquarters where there will be food and drink specials, live music, and more.
Shop local, give back and build your community. The monthly art walk offers friends and neighbors an evening where they can shop works from local Northwest artists, explore great food in the Greenwood-Phinney community and support community giving throughout the year.

In February, your purchasing power, combined with the Seattle City Light and Seattle Public Utilities’ cash rebates for energy efficient upgrades, will create the capital and inertia needed to aid the businesses in drastically reducing their energy use.
