Earth Hour

The Earth Hour 2009 did not stop us from celebrating my nephew’s graduation last year. Through a candle lit dinner, time just passed us by. Dinner continued on at Adarna Food and Culture, despite the darkened ambiance. What was left but to chit-chat with family members and relatives.

This year, Earth Hour will happen on March 27, 2010, from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Our primary call to action is still the switching off of lights during Earth Hour, but we also want to encourage everyone to advocate for Earth Hour and get their friends and family to join. The simple act of switching off lights for one hour produces significant energy savings, which then lessens the demand for energy and in the long run, reduces human-induced global warming. We see Earth Hour not as a stand-alone activity, but as a beginning to more energy efficient lifestyles and practices. There’s a greater imperative for us to be more conscious of how we consume energy.

Earth Hour paid off last year. The Philippines ranked #1 worldwide in terms of cities and towns participating, with 647. This year, we hope to even surpass that number, and with your help, we’re confident that we can.

Earth Hour is the hour when the world unites to take a stand against global warming, and it is with great pride that the Philippines is one of the leaders in this cause.

Switch off lights on March 27, 2010, from 8:30 P.M. to 9:30 P.M
