Last March I was hosting a party and I turned the lights off for an hour. Perhaps you’re thinking I was a bit skint, or it was a murder mystery party? No, it was Earth Hour, a fabulous concept, created by the WWF where everyone turns their lights off for an hour. One hour, that’s it. Last year nearly 1 billion people joined in, 1 BILLION!!
Some 1,000 famous landmarksacross the world are getting involved, they include the Las Vegas strip, the Empire State Building, the Pyramids of Giza, the London Eye and the iconic neon signs in Piccadilly Circus in London.
This year, Earth Hour is on Saturday 27th March 2010 at 8.30pm. Let’s all get behind this great initiative and turn off our lights for 60 mins, it’s not long I promise you. At my party last year we lit a few candles and we all got used to it, so much so that we decided to keep the lights off once the hour had ended. If you fancy some eco candles, try our pure soy wax candles or you could even try making your own out of old candle ends.
It’s a good reminder for what the world would be like without electricity and a message to the politicians that even though they may not have quite got the deal at Copenhagen, we have not forgotten about climate change. Do your bit and make your voice heard.
