There’s a great new site/movement called Carrotmob.

Bernie's CarrotmobThe idea is that they pick a business, designate a date and time, and drive boatloads of traffic to that business with the business agreeing to commit a percentage of those sales to Greening their business.  This can be switching to more efficient lighting, EnergyStar appliances, insulating doors, windows or walls, or switching to more sustainably-produced and ecologically-friendly supplies (like GreenWare cups or Biodegradable straws).

This coming weekend, on October 18th, from 11AM to 2PM, Noe Valley’s Bernie’s Coffee Shop will be the first cafe to get the Carrotmob treatment.

Please show your support for Bernie’s and stop by to sustain her and to help her sustain all of us!
