Carrotmob is a nonprofit organization based in San Francisco, California. It uses buycotts (a form of consumer activism where a community buys a lot of goods from one company in a small time period) to reward a business's commitment to making socially responsible changes to the business.

PETA has been leading the “naked” protesting” trend in a series of nonviolent (and eye-pleasing) protests involving hot women and men getting naked to draw public attention to pressing issues of animal cruelty—bull fighting, live export, and factory farming.
Their most recent campaign targets the poultry giant KFC, which retails an estimated 736 million chickens annually (NYT).
