Please support Earth Hour - Sat 31 March

At 8.30pm on Saturday 31 March, the world will unite once again to show support for our lovely planet by switching off its lights. Please join in this phenomenal initiative by switching off your lights for one hour, starting at 8.30pm local time.

Let's take this another step further this year. Unplug from the internet and switch off the TV. Spend one candle-lit hour reconnecting with your loved ones. If the weather is fair wherever you are, go outdoors and look up at the stars, or listen to the crickets and other night sounds.

Not only does our planet need a break from the incessant demands made of it, but so do we.

Are you planning to participate this year? If so, please share how you're going to spend that magical hour.
Me? I'm going to have a glass of wine and an early night's sleep.

  1. Very important post!

    Our tradition is for the boys to jump into our king size bed and we just laugh our heads off in the dark - usually reminiscing about the time one of them stepped on my skirt while I was walking down the steps in the movie theatre and how I went down in slow motion :) Good fun!
