“All you have to do is dance to save the world”

21 June 2008

I can’t wait until one of these opens in Minneapolis. A new eco-nightclub is opening in England that serves drinks in biodegradable cups, offers free entry to those who can prove that they bus, biked or walked to the club and generates up to 60% of the building’s power using the dance floor! When people dance on the floor, a series of blocks and coils are squeezed, sending energy to batteries.  Apparently there is a club in Holland already utilizing this technology, all supported by organization Club4Climate, which is seeking a new, fresh way to engage young people in fighting climate change.  Their website explains that they see “no reason why environmental awareness and hedonism shouldn’t go hand in hand.”

To which I say, dance on!
