Carrotmob is an organisation encouraging businesses to make green and socially responsible changes to their practices – use a ‘carrot’ not a stick.
A local convenience store in Hawthorn has pledged 100% of their carrotmob profits to go towards making positive and sustainable changes to their business!!! They can be found at 52 Church St and we’ll be mobbing (i.e. rocking up and buying something) them from 10.30 – 1pm on April 17th – put it in your diary. The owners are keen to try and sell more locally produced food and we will be helping them test this out at the Carrotmob. A sustainability assessment has been conducted and we have identified energy efficiency improvements they can put their carrotmob profit towards.
If you think this sounds great please come along and bring some friends. The bigger the mob the bigger the changes this store can make!
10.30am – 1pm Saturday 17 April, 2010
