The Net Impact club hosted the “Cycle-a-Smoothie” event on April 18 outside of the Elaine Langone Center.
At the event, students were able to create a banana strawberry smoothie using the power produced from the bicycle powered blender. The blender sat atop the back of the bicycle.
“We were very excited by the number of people who attended the event. Net Impact is definitely planning on holding more creative sustainable events,” Grace Sweetser ’16, treasurer of the Net Impact club, said.
The free event was geared towards promoting sustainability both on campus and in the community.
“[The event] was fun and a smart way to promote Net Impact and what they have to offer,” Associate Professor of Management Neil Boyd, advisor of Net Impact, said.
“Those smoothies were amazing! Who knew that bicycle power could be used to make something so delicious?” Lee Sun ’14 said.
