Coachella brings in arcade machines to save nature

New, 4 comments

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Annual Festival has partnered with Global Inheritance to create an arcade that encourages visitors to earn game tokens by performing nature-saving tasks.

The Nature Saving Arcade is a solar-powered video game arcade full of classic titles. Visitors can win prizes like tickets to see The Arcade Fire if they play in the arcade, but to do so they'll need to earn tokens.

Some of the nature-saving tasks visitors can do to earn tokens include recycling three bottles or cans while at the festival, showing a photo of themselves carpooling to Coachella with three or more friends, photographing themselves composting, charging their phone using the energy seesaw or showing the organizers their refillable water bottle.

Weekend one of Coachella took place from April 11-13 in the Colorado Desert. Weekend two will take place from April 18-20.
