To make it truly Earth-Day-worthy, however, make sure you’re chugging buying it at Seattle’s Pike Pub & Brewery today. Why there and why today?
Seattle Greendrinks has partnered with Carrotmob to create a consumer-powered event in which 25 percent of all sales at Pike Pub today will go toward efficiency retrofits, waste reduction, and other sustainability efforts.
It’s a way to vote with your dollars, to make change by spending a little of your own on something you would have purchased anyway. But because it’s an organized, focused effort — with many, many other consumers standing in line right behind you — it actually sends a message.
So forget about the planet’s ails and settle in for some refreshing, locally brewed ale of your own.
