We are partying without pollution today! We have already attended some parties over the past few weeks. See some photos on our Facebook page.
What is Party Without Pollution an how does it work? The Breeze website explains it:
“The Party without Pollution is a new part of Breeze on Tour – itís all about showing you that you can do normal things that will help look after the environment; itís not just for boffins or geeks!
The essential ingredients for any party will be there but with the added twist that you have to use pedal power to keep the party going. The partyís sound system, games console, TV and lights are all hooked up to three bike generators. So if you want to† dance to your favourite tunes, battle it out with your mates on the games console or see what it takes to keep the lights on, youíre going to have to provide a constant supply of energy by getting on the bikes and pedalling.
No party would be complete without party games. Put your skills to the test with the Bin Sling Saloon, a recycling game, and if you come to the party youíll get a special wristband. Keep this wristband on and listen out for an announcement at each event to find out what to do to win a solar powered toy.
Even grown ups who tag along could win an energy efficient digital radio. They just need to chat to any of the staff at the party to find out how.
Other activities and games will be joining the party on different days.
Every Thursday at all events:
- Join Leeds City Councilís Countryside Rangers to make dragonflies and try to identify mysterious natural objects.
Both days at Armley Park and Cross Flatts Park:
- Thermo, Leedsí very own energy saving super-hero will be making special appearances. See how much heat you produce on his high-tech thermal camera and chest-mounted display screen. Heíll also be challenging you to see if you can identify what is hot, or not.
The Party without Pollution is being supported by Europe Direct Leeds and the Ashden Awards for Sustainable Energy.”
