    Green Drinks NYC Networks at "The Park"

    NEW YORK – Oct. 14, 2008 – Green Drinks NYC presents its monthly environmental networking event at "The Park" on Tuesday, Oct. 14th from 6-10pm. These monthly events provide a platform for environmental enthusiasts to build lasting partnerships and friendships, to connect with employers and employees, and to develop and exchange ideas. All events are open to the public.

    This month's event is sponsored by McGraw-Hill Professional and features the Book Launch of Seth Leitman's Build Your Own Electric Vehicle, Second Edition. The first 100 people to show up will either receive hard copies or e-book editions.

    The new, updated edition of Build Your Own Electric Vehicle contains everything that made the first edition so popular while adding all the technological advances and new parts that are readily available on the market today. Seth Leitman is president and managing member of the ETS Energy Store, LCC, which sells organic, natural, and sustainable products for business and home use. Previously, Leitman worked for the New York State Power Authority and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, where he helped develop, market, and manage electric and hybrid vehicle programs serving New York State and the New York metropolitan area.

    At 8pm, hear from Seth Leitman, followed by a question-and-answer session. Also hear from Josh Dorfman, environmental entrepreneur, media personality and author of The Lazy Environmentalist: Your Guide to Easy, Stylish, Green Living; and Starre Vartan, eco-journalist and blogger.

    Attendees can enjoy the organic and natural decor of "The Park's" glass-enclosed atrium, lounge, dining area, and spacious garden. Tastings and snacks donated by Nutiva and Clif. Alternative transportation is encouraged through rideamigos.com, biking, walking, and this month's alternative car service NYC Green Car, Inc.

    David Bach, # 1 New York Times bestselling author of Go Green, Live Rich and The Automatic Millionaire, commented, "Any business that wants to reach 'green connectors' would be wise to join this community, it's changing the world and having fun at the same time."
