Saturday, March 23 marks the 7th annual Earth Hour when people from around the world turn their lights out for one hour from 8:30pm – 9:30pm.   Earth Hour started with one city and has grown to over 7000, with one country to seven continents, and with two million people to hundreds of millions of people.

Earth Hour was created to:

·     “To unite people and show our desire to protect the planet.

·     To encourage and empower people to take action beyond the hour itself

·     Create an interconnected global community and build on the momentum and action for a sustainable future.”

Earth Hour “has grown to become the largest mass participation event in history.”

This Saturday, why don’t you turn off your lights and encourage your family, friends, coworkers and neighbors to as well. It’s a small step with a big impact.  Visit www.earthhour.org for information, challenges, suggestions, kids’ activities and more on helping to build a sustainable future.

Lights out!

    • HI Paige –

      I will do a guest post. I am in the middle of a big move and would prefer to do it towards the end of April. Is that okay? Thanks for asking me. Be in touch.
