Eco-Cycle

Ride. Watch. Learn. Earn. During this 2 minute installation, users learn about sustainable consumption, earn a reward, have the chance to compete for a bigger prize, and literally feel the amount of energy needed to create a single compostable cup. We hope to build awareness of the environmental harm of using disposable cups and to encourage UW community members to bring their own reusable mugs. Together with computer science engineering majors, Alex Davis and Sachin Bharati, we built an interactive full-body experience for people where riding the bike would activate an informative video about sustainable cup usage. Participants of the installation would receive a coupon for a free drink at the Parnassus or the Husky grind if they bring their own mug. Participants who did the 1-minute biking speed challenge competed to win a free reusable thermos.
