First Carrotmob in Canberra a Great Success

Filed under How-To Centre

Carrotmob Canberra’s “mobbing” of the IGA supermarket in Ainslie on 11 June was a great success, with shoppers spending $12,000 to support the owners’ commitment to reduce their store’s greenhouse gas emissions.

This was the first event in a new local community campaign that is challenging ACT small businesses to “out green” each other in return for the patronage of a large mob of Canberrans who want a more sustainable city.

Ainslie IGA’s Manager, Manuel Xyrakis, pictured above with the event’s organiser Ren Webb, will apply 100% of the money spent by the Carrotmob towards reducing the store’s carbon footprint.

Congratulations to the Carrotmob team on this great initiative!
