Earth Hour 2008

Last year, WWF-Australia organized the inaugural Earth Hour. 2.2 millions residents and 2,100 businesses of Sydney turned off their lights for one hour. This collective effort reduced Sydney’s energy consumption by 10.2% for one hour, which is the equivalent effect of taking 48,000 cars off the road for a year. Many major global cities were inspired by the efforts of Sydney and are turning a symbolic event in to a global movement on March 29.

On Saturday, March 29 from 8:00 – 9:00 pm, the organizers of Earth Hour ask that individuals around the world turn off their lights for one hour. 

Friends, food-bloggers, and readers, please join me in conserving just a tiny bit of our resources tomorrow night.  Turn off your computer, bake an extra loaf or muffin today, and turn off your electricity for just one hour.  Light a candle and contemplate just how much of our earth’s resources we use and, often, take for granted.
