Recorded during the Ecotourism and Sustainable Tourism Conference 2010

The GSTC offers a unique opportunity for engaging like-minded organizations so we can join forces, learn from each other, avoid unnecessarily replicating efforts and together do much more than what we could do in isolation. We applaud and highly support this effort that will ultimately help existing initiatives mainstream sustainability in this industry. - Ronald Sanabria

Star-turn

Star-turn

Artist Bruce Munro and designer James Augustini have set up an intriguing geodesic dome structure, twinkling with lights which spin and trace graceful light trails, all thanks to pedal power. The Star-Turn installation was made as part of a fundraising effort Help for Heroes, a charity for wounded war veterans. The installation featured a geodesic dome that protected riders of a static Specialized Sirrus bike, which when pedaled, would spin attached armatures mounted with a helix of tea light candles each.

According to the press release, Munros design was inspired by accident: “Having recently fallen off his bike in the lanes near his workshop one dark and forbidding winter afternoon, Munro set about designing a sculptural piece for fundraising which he envisaged as the ultimate artistic cycling machine. It would not only keep riders warm and dry – it would also protect their egos from a battering and give them a chance to claim their 15 minutes of fame.”

The result: a spiralling, fire-lit light show that lasted most of the night until 4:30 am, with various volunteers taking turns lending some leg power for 15 minute intervals, while donors plopped coins into a big bucket nearby.

Harnessing Human Energy for Electricity

Harnessing Human Energy for Electricity

SportsArt Fitness, a designer and manufacturer of fitness equipment with many “green” credentials, is going beyond self-generating elliptical trainers that require no electricity to operate. It is now offering its “Green System.” The Green System is a suite of specially-engineered exercise machines coupled with a power inverter which promise to harness the human energy that typically dissipates as wasted heat into the atmospheres of gyms around the country.

Each pod of products can generate up to a maximum of 2000 watt-hours per hour of full use. Reaching that golden goal would mean ten human bodies working out with Olympian effort for a full hour. But, 2,000 watt-hours can run, say, a flat screen (27?) TV that consumes 120 watts for 17 hours.

Moving Sustainably: Green Commuting at Google!

Moving Sustainably: Green Commuting at Google!

Google isnt your average mega-corp. They like to do things their own way, and that includes getting their employees to work. The video shows how they seem to encourage any way of commuting that isnt the individual car, from unicycles to pogo-sticks and kayaks- most employees take the very comfortable bio-diesel shuttle buses with fast internet connections. In total, the combination of the GFleet and our shuttles result in net annual savings of more than 5,400 metric tons of CO2. Thats like taking over 2,000 cars off the road every day, or avoiding 14 million vehicle miles every year. says Brendon Harrington, Transportation Operations Manager at Google, about the various innovative transportation solutions at Google, which strive to keep employees commuting as sustainably as possible.
