Earth Hour 2011
You can go beyond Earth hour by switching off lights when you’re not home, by turning on less lights when you are and being conscious of your usage. Reduce your meat consumption or try being a weekday vegetarian. Eat local, buy local and live simply.
Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change. Only a year later and Earth Hour had become a global sustainability movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries/territories participating.
At 8:30 PM (Tonight) on Saturday 26th March 2011, lights will switch off around the globe for Earth Hour and people will commit to actions that go beyond the hour. Imagine what we can achieve if we go beyond the hour.
