Get in the Spirit of Supporting a Greener KC

Do you like to shop and be green? Well, now you can do both by joining Carrotmob KC at World of Spirits (1722 W. 39th St.) on Oct. 21. Recently, Carrotmob KC went to 15 different Midtown area businesses in Kansas City. They asked them to commit a percentage of revenue towards making their business more energy efficient if the team brought a mob of paying customers. And World of Spirits won with the highest bid. That means that 24 percent of the revenue collected between 5-10 p.m. on Oct. 21 will go towards making this business greener.

Carrotmob originally started in San Francisco as a plan to make sustainability profitable for businesses through contests. Now, it has moved to a new level with the company Vigrance, which plans on creating a social network to create thousands of Carrotmob-type contests around the world.

So be a part of the carrot madness! Start on Oct. 21 by stocking up on beverages for the year — or even the decade — and help World of Spirits become greener. Or start a Carrotmob in your city! Check out the video below to get an idea on how.
