We love Friends of the Earth
...so much that we decided to take them our super bike powered mobile phone charging station (2 bikes and 25 mobiles get charged) to Hop Farm Music Festival last weekend. Yes we might have been a little persuaded by The Human League, The Eagles, Prince and other retro bands; but who doesn't love a bit of 80s?!
Kathryn Holloway from Friends of the Earth said:
"we had a fantastic weekend at Hop Farm Festival in Kent. The pedal-powered mobile phone charging attracted a huge amount of interest from an array of festival-goers, all impressed with the concept of charging their phone by pedaling, and eager to get involved with a fun, practical and energy-conscious activity. And we raised over £100 in donations!
...the bikes helped to draw people over to the rest of our stall, and allowed us to have some interesting and more in-depth conversations about the many environmental issues we campaign on at Friends of the Earth."
Massive thank-you to Joe from Good Energy for making it happen.
