Turn Out the Lights in Two Days
Earth Hour is 2 days away but it's not too late to join the fun.
First, there's Earth Hour itself -- switching off the lights for one hour all over the world at 830 pm (2030) on Saturday March 31st. Sounds like a good excuse for a bring your own candle party.
Join the "hundreds of millions of people, businesses and governments around the world" who are doing just that on Saturday, according to the Earth Hour site.
Second, there's the "I Will If You Will" challenge via You Tube and Earth Hour. Cool stuff.
This is where you can accept challenges like "I'll do the polar bear swim IF 2000 people agree to pick up trash by the beach" or "Committed will perform a free concert IF 5,000 people will give up plastic bottles".
I've already accepted the polar bear swim and to run a marathon. I am looking to create my own, maybe walk everywhere for two weeks if 10,000 people make sustainable seafood choices, or something like that.
All of it is fun and inspiring, let alone a lovely nod to planet earth.
Earth Hour is a World Wildlife Fund program.
