Earth Hour

So this post is about the World Wildlife Fund’s Earth Hour – similar to the National Day of Unplugging, which I previously wrote about, but this is only for an hour.

Basically, the idea is that you turn off all your lights at 8.30pm on Saturday 29th March for an hour – and appliances, TV, computer too if you like – and do something that is better for our planet (for some ideas, check out WWF’s list of 60 Things To Do In The Dark). If you really can’t do it at this time, pick another time instead, I don’t think it really matters! But if you do move it then I’d suggest you should go for a time that you normally have lights blazing and you’re using lots of power, just so it makes more of a difference to you.

I try to do something similar every now and again, but I love the thought of so many people turning their lights out at the same time, all to show solidarity for our world. UK attractions including Big Ben, the London Eye, Brighton Pier and Blackpool Tower will all be turning off their lights – joining in with thousands of people around the world!

One of my favourite ideas is curling up with a good book and some hot chocolate (I have lots of candles so I can make use of them too!), although my sisters should be around that day so I’ll make my priority catching up with them 🙂

Do you think this is a good idea? What are you going to do?
