Earth Hour - Logo
Please join me in the Earth Hour event on March 26, 2011 at 8:30pm along with billions of other people around the world.

During Earth hour, I will be with my husband and my children enjoying a relaxing candle light and good quality family time. I will continue to adopt sustainability practices thereafter in my every day life

We can all come together to build a sustainable future.Take action to make our world a better place. Spread the word by sharing your beyond the hour act on your social networks, and remember to turn off the lights for one hour on March 26, 2011 at 8:30pm

This Earth Hour, go beyond the hour!

We all have a responsibility for the sustainability of our planet and each of us can make a difference.

I will continue to recycle, and buy locally produced goods and services thereby eliminating thousand of pounds of carbon by reducing fossil fuel transportation demands.
I will also continue to grow my organic fruit and vegetable garden, heal the soil where I can and keep it alive.

Reduce your Carbon Footprint to live an Eco Friendly Life. Here is a list of simple things you can do:

* Replace the light bulbs in your home with energy saving, long life CFL (compact fluorescent) bulbs
*Replace exterior lights with solar-powered ones
*Use rechargeable batteries
*Turn off when not in use (lights, television, DVD player, HiFi, computer, etc.
*Turn down central heating slightly (just 2 degrees will make a significant saving)
*Install thermostatic valves on your radiators
*Insulate your hot water tank
*Recycle your grey water (use for watering plants)
*Water your garden in the evening as this will save water
*For short journeys either walk or cycle
*Buy locally produced goods and services
*Buy organic fruits and vegetables from local farmers markets thereby eliminating harmful insecticides and pesticides that is otherwise used on our planet.
*Filter your own water, rather than buying bottled water
*Wash clothing with cold water as much as possible
*Hang clothing outside to air dry whenever possible
*Recycle as much as possible
