Earth Hour

This Saturday - 28 March - at 8:30PM, we will be taking part in Earth Hour.

Earth Hour is something that started in Sydney two years ago. During 8:30-9:30PM, we all switch off our lights. Actually, during the whole hour you don't switch on anything - no computer, stereo, TV, lights. It's a wonderful experience, and I love to look out the window and see total darkness around us. It almost feels like a blackout, but one created by choice.

It's amazing just how much energy can be saved by taking part in this event. And this year, it's going to be huge, because according to their website they're hoping that 1 billion people will take part all around the world.

This is such a fantastic and easy thing to do for our planet, so why not take part? All it takes is a little darkness and silence. Some time with your loved ones, to connect, catch up, or just sit down and think about giving back a little to a planet that gives us so much.

I think that sometimes we tend to forget that.

So... will you be taking part this year? I hope you do.

We sat in the dark for an hour and read by flashlight...it was a bit like camping and we had a blast. Our teen actually "talked" to us...we should do it more often!
