Join Alaska Center for the Environment, Green Star, and Tap Root on November 3 for Anchorage’s first Carrotmob!!
The Carrotmob concept was born in San Francisco a couple years ago and is a “buycott” where patrons turn out en masse to use their buying power to encourage a business to implement energy efficiency measures. The name comes from the “carrot and the stick” approach to encouraging businesses to improve their carbon footprint.
Tap Root has agreed to use 100% of the night’s profits to upgrading their facility and will be working with Green Star to help determine the most beneficial energy efficiency improvements. The Carrotmob begins at 5pm with a Shannyn Moore show at Tap Root focusing on energy efficiency, and will continue until closing with music from the John Cook Trio. Be sure to check out Tap Root’s food and drink specials for the event!
