Eco club the latest face on the social (enterprise) scene

drearth.jpgIt’s Friday, so what are you doing tonight? How about trying out Club4Climate, Britain’s first eco nightclub?Based in London’s Kings Cross at Bar Surya, this genius idea is the brainchild of property entrepreneur turned eco dance warrior Andrew Charalambous, aka Dr. Earth. It officially launched last night showcasing what Charalabous sees as an eco blueprint for other clubs to follow.The club uses poly-carbon cups, which it claims are the world’s most sustainable drinking utensil; recycles all glass, metal, paper and plastic materials; airflush waterless urinals; uses screens to educate clubbers on the perils of climate change; offers free entry to clubbers who can prove they arrived by foot, cycle or public transport; and makes all its clubbers sign a pledge to curbing climate change.By far the most impressive feature though is the dancefloor which generates electricity when people dance on it! The more people shake their eco asses, the more electricity is produced!
