OC Green Market, a division of Healthy Bargains, LLC, has announced it will host a Greenie Speed Dating event on Saturday, February 11, two days before Valentine’s Day, from 12-2 pm at Irvine Valley College. Each participant will meet 7 men or women with each conversation lasting 5 minutes. After the event participants will receive their matches through email.
“This is a great event to meet other people that care about the environment, work in the environmental field or live a green lifestyle like you do. And because it’s held outdoors in the middle of the day, the atmosphere is more casual than an evening event and you don’t have to get all dressed up! says organizer Rana Sabeh.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online at http://ocgreenmarketdating-auto.eventbrite.com/.
Green Saturdays @ OC Green Market is open once a month every Second Saturday from 9am – 2pm at Irvine Valley College. OC Green Market is the first of its kind in Orange County, CA to exclusively feature unique eco-friendly merchants. Having launched November 2011, it’s still small and growing and soon will offer a ‘one-stop shop’ of green products and services, holistic/alternative therapies and educational nonprofits.
Classes began January 14 and will continue monthly (except February) at every market date. Topics will be diverse but focused within green and healthy living. Fitness classes such as Yoga and Zumba will be added as well.
“I want to pull in people who don’t know about living green and educate them to see how it can fit into their lifestyle,” said Rana Sabeh, creator of OC Green Market.
“It’s an opportunity for them to understand that it’s a win-win for their health, families and for the environment, as well.”
