Manchester 10/10/10 Carrotmob
Sunday, 10 October, 2010 - 13:00 - 15:00
Manchester's 10/10/10 action will be our second Carrotmob (http://carrotmob.org/), an event in which consumers "mob" a local business with purchases in return for the business' promise to use the extra profits thus generated to improve energy efficiency or make other climate-friendly improvements.
It's a win-win-win: support a local business, treat oneself to a small purchase, and reduce the store's carbon footprint.
The 10/10/10 Carrotmob will mob the Hillsborough Market, an East Side bodega. Hillsborough Market owner Betty Delisle has pledged 100 percent of the Carrotmob profits she makes between 1-3 p.m. that Sunday to greening her store via energy efficiency improvements and other measures. Delisle said that while her store’s bread and butter is currently beer, soda, packaged food and tobacco sales, she is very interested in offering more healthful options to her customers and neighbors. To that end, she recently began selling fresh produce from several area farm stands.
