Anxiety and sustainability have been two of the main key words of 2019, from the SS20 Gucci runway to the boom of Fridays for Future. Although they have always been linked, a new consciousness has risen in the past few days, and it regards the until now untouched world of fun:

Single-use plastic cups, high-powered sound systems and energy consuming lights make nightlife a significantly polluting industry, and at the time of #FridaysForFuture, Millennials and Generation Z clubbers can’t take it easily. #ApocalypseNow is happening, so isn’t it the right time to let the old habits go?
