earth hour 2013 [link friday, 3.22]

The seventh annual Earth Hour is happening tomorrow evening. Wherever you are, whatever time zone you are in, when 8:30 p.m. rolls around, turn off all non-essential lights and electronics and enjoy the hour. Read a book by candlelight, take a nap, play some Ouija, go outside...whatever you do, take a stand for the planet.

Earth Hour is a global movement uniting people to protect the planet. Towards the end of March every year, Earth Hour brings together communities from across the world celebrating a commitment to the planet by switching off lights for one designated hour. The symbolism of the hour is incredibly important in bringing people and communities together across the globe.

So this year, figure out where you'll be at 8:30 p.m. on March 23, and decide how you can take a stand and join the movement. (I will actually be in the middle of a concert out of town, so I am choosing to celebrate Earth Hour at another time...makes me a little sad, but the intent and meaning is still there!)

And if you want to do a little research or follow along with social media updates, peruse these sites:
Happy Earth Hour to all of you! Should you participate, share with everyone! The official Twitter hashtag is #EarthHour.

We participated in Earth Hour too! M kept asking, "Mommy, was is our house in the dark?" It's hard explaining conservation to a 3 year old!

I love it! This also gives me some ideas on posts about educating children in being green. :)
