Partying to save the planet may sound like the plot to some National Lampoons movie, but a new idea may just make that a reality. SolarBeatz, an environmentally aware startup based in Chicago, aims to help slow the process of global warming in a creative way. Using a mobile, solar-powered, music venue, SolarBeatz not only brings green fun across America but also their environmental message.
PREVENT GLOBAL WARMING WITH DANCE
SolarBeatz was started by a group of fun-loving, environmentally conscious friends from Chicago. As anyone who is concerned about Earth’s future and global warming, they sought to make a difference. Instead of the typical approach to spreading a green-friendly message, they created SolarBeatz. Since its incarnation in 2010, the team behind SolarBeatz has been bringing its mobile music venue to various festivals, events, schools, and parties across America. There is not question fun is a main aspect of SolarBeatz. A nice side effect, however, is raising awareness of global warming and environmental sustainability to a unique crowd.
THE SPECS BEHIND SOLARBEATZ
Having a mobile music venue that runs on fossil fuels would most likely be counterproductive to stopping global warming. Because of this, SolarBeatz is built with highly advanced, solar-powered technology. This is not just a collection of cheap speakers powered by the sun. SolarBeatz has a professional light rig, concert-quality sound and a skilled crew that knows how to run it all. As a massive, mobile attraction that uses around 5000W of power, it surely does its job in raising awareness.
CONTRIBUTE TO SOLARBEATZ; STOP GLOBAL WARMING
As successful as SolarBeatz has been in raising awareness to an atypical audience of carefree party goers, they have recently requested some help. SolarBeatz began as a high-powered, party animal that could put on raging concerts for hours through the night. As one would expect, this kind of lifestyle takes a toll over the years. Due to this, SolarBeatz has released a campaign to fund some of their repairs. With these repairs, SolarBeatz aims for even further sustainability in order to keep on spreading their message to the world.
