Last summer London premiered with the world’s first eco-nightclub. It sells ecological drinks, has waterless urinals and tries to be green in many other aspects. But what makes this nightclub really special? Your presence is fueling it with free energy.
All you have to do is dance to save the world
Because next to solar energy and a wind turbine you are a solid source of energy. The designers of the nightclub, Club4Climate, managed to develop a dancefloor which can store energy. All you have to do is dance the night away, your movement will trigger power generating blocks that conserve energy. By having fun, you can feel green. How great is that?
It’s especially interesting since it is a good way to create awareness. A lot of green products cost extra money, but this club isn’t more expensive… it’s even cheaper: When you go by foot or bike, you get in for free. And the club hasn’t changed the way you have fun, you can still drink and dance on great music. All it does is interact with you in a subtle way, giving you the feeling that you are doing something good by having fun. And at the same time it feeds you with knowledge about alternative energy sources and the need for a clean world. Everyone wins.
