The Unconventional Cellist is Kristin Rule, a musician who is touring by bicycle. Accompanying her is a solar-powered, electric-assist trailer. The 30-watt solar photovoltaic panel on the 'Mechanarchy 'Watt-Bot' trailer stores electrical energy in a pair of 12-volt batteries. These batteries provide up to three hours of electrically assisted riding.

The Unconventional Cellist is an unconventional eco-activist also. Her choice to tour very green is inspiring!

Implications - Eco-conscious consumers aren't merely seeking environmentally friendly products, but also services and forms of entertainment that benefit the earth. These green services enable consumers to reflect their positive environmental values to their peers. Companies can consider creating green events or services to cater to green demographics.
