A blender was attached to a bicycle. When the bike was being peddled, the smoothie started to blend.

A member of Holland College’s Green Machine, Blair Arsenault said the bike promotes a healthy lifestyle.

The Green Machine is Holland College’s sustainability committee.

“You are getting exercise when riding the bike, and making a healthy smoothie.”

People were encouraged to bring in their old electronics to recycle.

The event promoted a more efficient lifestyle such as solar panel, air panels and recycling.
