Earth Hour 2011



Earth hour started in Sydney in 2007 and since then has become a global initiative. The idea is that everyone around the world will turn their electricity off for 60 minutes at a particular time and date, in order to bring attention to the way we are destroying our earth. The last two years I have supported it and we have turned our lights off for that hour. This year I hadn't heard anything about it and then last night I suddenly got an email. I popped off to the website to discover that it is this Saturday night at 8:30pm, so I have signed up again. I will be switching off, are you?

  1. Hi Tracy, got here from BFS with Shimelle. I was so excited to find someone from KZN doing this class as I'm in CT and travel to your side of the woods often on business. Great to meet you, hopefully we'll connect often.
    Hugs
