I have been participating in Earth Hour since 2008. It has grown SO MUCH since that time and truly has become a global moment. I consider it to be one of the most important hours of my year.
What is Earth Hour?
On March 31st from 8:30pm – 9:30pm (your time, wherever you are)
Turn all of the lights, unplug all of your electronics, the goal is to use zero energy during that hour.
Last year Brad and I had a nice cozy fire and a bottle of wine. It’s a great hour to re-connect with someone and put away your electronics. Invite a friend or family member over for a drink or coffee in the dark.
Most importantly it’s an hour to reflect on the ways that YOU can be better to the earth. Last year Brad and I set our intention to go to the neighbourhood park and pick up garbage and we followed through with our plan a few weeks later on Earth Day.
Join me in celebrating Earth Hour!
Even the Lorax is participating 😉
Have you participated in Earth Hour before? Will you participate this year? What other commitments have you made in the name of climate change?
