I’d like to tell you about a group called Carrotmob. What Carrotmob does is approach a bunch of small businesses and ask them to use a percentage of profits from one day for environmental improvements. The business that promises the largest percentage gets mobbed by customers on the agreed day. Carrotmob Minneapolis is rallying people to shop this Saturday at Guse Hardware at 4206 Bryant Ave. S. The store is using 100% of the day’s profits for environmental improvements! I’m guessing you must need something from a hardware store – numbers for your mailbox, buckets, a nail? Come on by. There will be music and fun. And nails. Thanks to my friend Sarah for telling me about this.
