Earth Hour 2008

Weekends are finally here again!

If you have nothing else better to do tonight, or even if u have, you are welcome to join this international event -
Earth Hour 2008.

It's an event that asks households and businesses to TURN OFF their lights and other non-essential electrical appliances for

1 HOUR to promote electricity conservation and thus lowering carbon emissions.

Earth Hour uses the simple action of turning off the lights for one hour to deliver a powerful message about the need for action on global warming.

This event which was started in Sydney in 2007, is now a global movement that is supported by 2,100 global corporations eg: McD, Canon, Coca-Cola, HSBC & Citicorp just to name a few.

Over 2.2 million people turned off their lights during last year's event which resulted in a 10.2% energy reduction in the city in just an hour!

Make it happen TONIGHT - 29th March at 8 p.m. local time.

Get additional info & tips on how you can be a part of Earth Hour 2008 on its official website.
