Go “Eco-clubbing” this weekend in London

We’re always hearing stuff on the news about how we’re meant to be being greener, looking after the planet, recycling and generally reducing our CO2. However, when you’re on a night out most of that goes by the wayside – until now.

Surya is a new club in Kings Cross that features a self-generating energy dancefloor which by combining materials such as quartz crystals, ceramics, cutting edge technology and the dancing motion of clubbers generates enough energy to power up to 50% of the clubs energy requirements.

A wind turbine and a solar energy system makes the club 100% fully sustainable and an advanced alternative energy system is so effective that it will produce a surplus of electricity which is freely donated to the private residents closest to the building. The club has also installed the latest air flush, waterless urinals and low flush toilets and automatic taps to ensure maximum water saving and the latest innovations in ecological air conditioning units.

And the best bit? All customers attending the club who can demonstrate that they travelled there by foot, cycle or public transport receive free entry…. sounds good to me.

Full details are available about this weekends events here, or if you want to find out more about the man behind it all, just go to the Club4Climate website here.
