Carrot Mobs

Buying campaign to promote climate protection

A Carrotmob campaign is the opposite of a boycott: a group of people spends money to support a business, and in return the business makes an improvement that people care about. It’s a coordinated buying campaign in which customers create a positive incentive (a “carrot”) for businesses to do what people want, such as changes related to energy efficiency waste reduction and other climate/environmental issues. Other carrot mobs can focus on social justice issues, such as selling healthy fruits and vegetables in poor neighborhoods without access, or giving restaurant workers paid sick leave.
