People's Premiere: Eco-Elements
For all the actual details of how we got the People's Premiere emissions so very very low, see here.
Here's a little photo-story of how Team Stupid brought together the different elements for this greenest of film premieres...
Recycling a banner for the solar cinema
This banner had a previous life as one corner of an enormous Greenpeace banner that was hung off the Bank of England earlier this year.

Team Stupid scrounged a load of used chipfat from some West End restaurants, to be processed by PureFuels so we could run our van off it on the day.
Purefuels conversion from waste to useful fuel
This splendid yellow bio-diesel van was on loan from Greenpeace for the day.
