What does it mean to be Carrot Mobbed?


CarrotMobbing is a win-win-win model for the business, consumers, and the environment.

ECO will be the “organizers” in this case, coming to YOUR business to engage you in a carrot mob.

An agreement will then be made of what kind of change your business will make in exchange for a “mob.”

Then… we’ll bring the mob to you!

Is there something you’ve wanted to change but haven’t been able to yet?

The types of changes we’re looking for are

  • Energy Efficiency
  • Waste Reduction
  • Local/Sustainable Product Sourcing

Anything good for the environment- we’re open to ideas!
