We are all very busy pulling together the last minute details for our Carrotmob event this weekend in Chicago (Sunday, August 9, 12-6pm at Fox & Obel's).
Carrotmob is a bunch of consumers who buy stuff to support businesses that make socially responsible decisions. It rewards good businesses instead of punishing bad ones. It offers green for green. When you join Carrotmob Chicago on Sunday, August 9, in giving Fox & Obel the business, a portion of the ka-chings will go toward making the store more energy efficient. And energy efficiency means less use of precious natural resources and a healthier environment for everyone. It’s about offering a carrot, instead of wielding a stick -- for the good of the planet.
I can't thank Christine Esposito, Laura Flanigan, Heather Roth, Hehershe Busuego, Erin Espeland, and Emily Breuker for their hard work and dedication in making this happen and for organizing an incredible cadre of volunteers and supporters in Chicago.
Don't forget to "JOIN THE MOB" this Sunday at Fox & Obel's. In the meantime, check out the great video our team put together. And don't forget to check out the photos of the Colossal Carrot (even Mayor Daley likes the Carrotmob idea!).
For more information, check out the Carrotmob website, the Carrotmob Chicago website, and the Fox & Obel website.
See you this Sunday! Carrotmob...where orange is the new green!
