Buy a cup of coffee, get some solar power

All next week your daily caffeine fix can go towards solar panels for a local cafe.

Cafe Lua won the mob with over 50% of the 1200 plus online votes. To see the online pledge and the other businesses competing visit the City of Melbourne website. This Carrotmob is the first mob run in conjunction with the City of Melbourne

From compost to solar power
Café Lua, a small happening place of deliciousness, is very committed to reducing their environmental impact. They’ve undertaken a range of initiatives including switching to compostable and reusable coffee cups, installing efficient lighting and water faucets, offering used coffee grounds for compost and installing leavers on windows to encourage natural air flow.

Café Lua now wants to take their sustainability leadership to a whole new level in the Carlton business community by installing solar power.  50 cents from every cup of coffee sold from 25th to 29th June will be put towards solar panels.

Join us
To be part of the Carrotmob and support this initiative simply rock up and buy a coffee/ssss from Cafe Lua during the week of 25th – 29th June (on average they sell 1800 coffees a week! let’s smash it!). The week long event will culminate in a Carrotmob celebration on the Friday from 10am – 12pm!

If you’re planning to show up let us know on the Carrotmob website.
