Earth Hour 2009

VOTE EARTH

As Earth Hour approaches, we're constantly reminded about doing our part to help protect the earth. The idea here is to encourage people around the world to shut off unnecessary lights and electronics during the designated hour. This event was initiated by WWF-Australia and it has inspired many cities worldwide to show their support to combat global warming and protect our environment. Events like this is a great start for people across the globe to go green.

We can all contribute something, even if it's a very small gesture which can mean a significant difference to our mother nature. Personally, I want to appreciate the beautiful night sky, gazing at the twinkling stars with my kids. It can be a wonderful experience but I think the reason I love the stars most is that there is light shining in the darkness. They are simply beautiful.

With all the lights off, each of our efforts will be considered a vote for Earth against global warming. Let's bring it on, people!

Happy Earth Hour!

  6. Thanks for promoting Earth Hour! Another way you can recruit people to the cause is by creating a Earth Hour group on Commit21.com. Simply create a group about one action that you will commit to do for Earth Hour and recruit your friends, family, and co-workers to get involved in that action as well. When it comes to climate change, simple actions can make huge differences and Commit21 leverages social media to influence networks of friends, family, and co-workers.
