As of 2014, the life expectancy in America is 78.6 years. *
The average person spends 23 days a year on their phone *
We watch TV for 9.1 years. *
We spend 70% of our time awake on electronic media. *
Despite our general attitudes in support of sustainability, how would we feel today if we took a break from using fossil fuels for our everyday needs and digital satisfaction?
Biolite is initiating a 48-hours-off-the-grid pledge to give our eyes and mental states a rest from clicks, scrolls, and, let’s face it: Netflix. The weekend of August 14-August 16th, step into the wilderness for 48 hours with other Bioliters in over 70 countries worldwide. Off-grid campers can share their adventures and story through social media.
Not equipped to camp? Biolite asks pledgers to focus on using ‘alternative sources of energy’. Or come climb!
