Carrot Mob San Luis Obispo

Carrot Mob this afternoon. Liz and I rolled up to the Quick Stop Market on Broad Street to see a mini mob of people, Bike Coalition bike racks, music playing and a lot of happy people. We parked the tandem and visited with a few friends before heading into the market for some shopping. I’ve never stepped foot inside the store before, but the Carrot Mob brought me to spend some green for green.

The store’s owner won a bidding war for our patronage. He pledged 40% of his profit that day to energy efficient upgrades at his store. For his pledge, he had a parking lot full of people buying beer, chips, chicken soup, hot sauce and wine. Well, those were our purchases. People were coming out with arm loads of goods and all for the greater good.

Thanks SLO Carrot Mobsters.
