Support Earth Hour and turn you lights off!

Monday, 18 March 2013

We will once again be supporting WWF Earth Hour. Earth Hour is an annual event with an aim to get as many people all over the world to turn their lights off at 8.30pm on Saturday 23rd March for one hour.

The event is now in its seventh year and now includes events taking place in 152 counties with millions of people taking part across the world. This year’s focus is on the types of energy we use and encouraging people and governments to move away from polluting fossil fuels and towards renewable green fuels such as wind and solar power. We need to work with the power of nature and not against it. Although conserving energy is important this event is about joining millions of others who want to protect the planet and showing support for a better energy future.

Earth Hour is the perfect time to spend time with friends and family doing something different. It is the perfect opportunity to have an indoor candle-lit picnic or dinner party with a menu designed specifically for earth hour by celebrity chefs, or how about getting together and listening to WWFs special audio book versions of some of Rudyard Kipling’s ‘Just So’ stories narrated by Kevin McCloud, Alistair McGowan and Mirander Richardson. For more ideas on how to spend the hour with your lights off visit the Earth Hour website for ideas such as star gazing, having a ‘onesie’ party and instructions on how to make an origami wind turbine.

Whatever you chose to do in your hour without lights make sure you register your participation on the Earth Hour website. There are lots of hints and ideas about how to spend your earth hour as well as well as more information about Earth Hour and the things that we can do to make a difference.

So why not join the Myakka team and millions of other people around the world by turning your lights off for one hour on March 23rd at 8.30pm.
