Dancing is not the only thing that prosecco can power this Christmas
Whether you’re hitting the dance floor, throwing a house party or belting out the words to Last Christmas in the shower; our #RecycledBeats campaign reveals how the things that you recycle could be transformed into energy to power all of your musical adventures this festive season.
Q. Recycling one prosecco bottle saves enough energy to power a DJ set for...
- A. 20 minutes
- B. 30 minutes
- C. 60 minutes
Recycling can help power the party at every stage...
Flick the switches to power the party...
1. Getting Ready
Good tunes are an essential part of ANY pre-party preparations. Whilst you’re singing into the shower head, remember that 1 empty shampoo bottle could save enough energy to play 5 Super Furry Animals albums on your home stereo, back to back.
2. At the house party
That house party is guaranteed to run out of loo roll before the end of the night. Did you know that the toilet roll tube could actually provide the disco magic? Recycling just 1 tube saves enough energy to keep the disco ball spinning for two whole hours.
3. At the Gig
Will dancing be your main form of exercise this Christmas? Just don’t forget to stay fresh on and off the dance floor. Recycling one can of deodorant could power a guitar amp for 9 gigs!
4. The recovery
Curling up on the sofa with an amazing line up of Christmas classics and plenty of refreshments is the ultimate late night recovery cure. Don’t feel guilty for your duvet time... just one empty can recycled from the night before could power the TV long enough to watch Home Alone, Love Actually, and even some of The Grinch.
5. The big clean-up
The party is over and everyone is asleep, yet the empty cleaning products are full of energy. Five recycled bleach bottles saves enough energy to power a spinning disco lights for 25 hours. Enough to keep the party alive in 2017!
