Lets switch our lights off together on the 26th March 2011 for Earth Hour...
At 8.30 PM on Saturday 26 March 2011, lights will switch off around the globe for Earth Hour. However the organisers this year are looking for more than us just switching our lights off for one hour. They want us to think beyond the hour and what difference small or big we can make to our enviroment. The organisers are encouragning us, to share our stories, thoughts and ideas and to get inspiration from what others are doing. Share your stories on the Earth Hours website and they will tell the world. Together our actions add up. Some of the actions already announced include the commitment by the Nepalese government to put an end to tree-felling in the Churiya range, a 23 000 square kilometres forest area. Chinese actor and singer Li Bingbing has pledged to eat a vegetarian diet for 100 days this year to help reduce carbon dioxide emissions caused by the cycle of meat production and consumption, it added. Pakistani cricket legend Wasim Akram has promised to stop using plastic bags. Jim Leape, director general of environmental group WWF International, which helped initiate the movement, said small individual actions can go a long way to saving planet Earth. "The challenges that face our planet are immense, but never underestimate the possibility for change when we face these challenges with true common purpose," he said. "It is now time to go beyond the hour and show what can be done - by the people for the planet."
