Earth Hour

A little reminder not to forget that Earth Hour is today, and to turn out the lights from 8:30 to 9:30 pm tonight. Through this one simple gesture you can join the millions of others responding to the call to stand up, to take responsibility and to get involved in working towards a sustainable future. Last year lots of blogs featured how they spent the hour, such as candlelit Scrabble games with friends, romantic dinners for two, or sitting outside looking at the stars. What do you plan to do? Shown above is the fab poster commissioned for the event from Shepard Fairey, most famous for his iconic Obama poster.

Hi. What did you do?

My son and I turned off the lights and walked the dog. However in our neighbourhood in Toronto nobody seemed to heed the request. It was seriously as bright as any other night I walk the dog.

3 cafes served dinner by candle light and that was it. Toronto's consumption was down by 15%. Not in my area did it. Any way. I bitched about it on my blog.

You're welcome, Liza! And Pup, we lit candles and spent the hour rediscovering the gentle art of conversation. There were still lights on around us, but less than last year — a good sign that people are slowly getting into Earth Hour as they find out more about it.
