One Hour For The Earth

Earth Hour 2010On March 27th at 8:30 p.m. cities and people all over the world are turning off their lives to help bring awareness to climate change. Last year more than 4,000 cities in 87 countries joined in. Over 300 cities just in the US went dark. This year will hopefully bring even more supporters.

To join in you can go to Earth Hour and sign up. Businesses, cities, and states can also join! It doesn’t get much easier than turning off your lights for one hour to help bring climate change awareness.

Here are some tips and ideas for this Earth Hour:

1. Eat dinner with your family by candle light.
2. Find a local Earth Day event.
3. Host your own event!
4. Play games with the family by candle light.
5. Play Hide & Go Seek outside in the dark with friends.
6. Play Sardines with friends.

Remember if you are using candles during Earth Hour please use soy, vegetable, or beeswax candles. Normal candles are made from petroleum byproducts and can be harmful to us and the environment.
