Earth Hour, scheduled for 8:30 – 9:30 pm (local time) on Saturday, March 27, is more than a publicity stunt. It’s a chance for all of us to take 60 short minutes to see what life would be like without electricity. Around the world people will turn off lights, radios, televisions and other appliances.
For one hour, we can connect to people in every corner of our planet, showing how seriously we take sustainability.
It’s also a great chance to live a little differently than we normally do. What’s wrong with an hour that’s a little quieter, a little darker and a little less hectic? Watch the stars. Light a candle. Relax.
Earth Hour is a good chance to disconnect from modern technology, and just appreciate one of our favorite planets.
