Fast, Fun

CRAB is a simple, high speed, and accessible workshop that is for any small business who is feeling lost and overwhelmed.

Every attendee gets 1 CRAB – a box of actions to reduce their footprint.  

During a 1 hour session, they are guided through a series of action cards.  

Each card helps them understand their carbon footprint and gives some reduction ideas based on their emissions.


Run Anywhere

Carbon reduction plans affect everyone, not just professional services. 

The CRAB workshop can be run anywhere from a field to a church or cafe, allowing it to bring local communities together to discuss the impacts important to them. 

All you need is a pen, we do the rest!


Each month Small99 releases new new action cards.

Each card comes with 5 suggested actions and supporting notes for how a business can implement it, and the benefits of doing so. 

These are ideal for supporting accountability sessions and keeping business on their journey.
