Carrotmob is a way for anyone to make a real difference with the environment by buying ordinary things in a targeted way. Carrotmob organizes people who care about the environment to use their buying power to negotiate with businesses.

Carrotmob is a network of thousands of organized consumers who buy products in order to reward businesses that are making the most socially responsible decisions. The first campaign took place in San Francisco, CA, as a large-scale, citizen-powered global initiative and has since spread to other cities around the world – first arriving in Charleston in April of 2009.

The press releases are going out!

We are really moving now! Holy City Bike Coop is going to coordinate a bicycle valet for those who choose to bike to the Carrotmob! Very cool. We are also going to implement a bicycling component at our monthly Green Drinks meetings - and those patrons who bike to the gatherings will get a free drink!

So back to Carrotmob - the press releases started their journey through local media today and we are very excited. If you would like a copy, email us and we will send one along until we can get one posted online.

Thanks for your support. More to follow...
