One Hour. One World. March 24, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — natalian @ 1:52 pm

I have really been trying to do my bit for planet earth but my kitchen looks like a landfill site and it is all my fault.  Since the beginning of the year I have had a huge attack of green consciousness and so every “tetra pak”, plastic, glass and cardboard item that I come across is been washed and stored in the corner of my kitchen counter – well no longer the corner – more like the whole counter!  My trips to the recycling bins are not frequent enough so it won’t be long and clutter phobic Hubby will start grumbling for sure! 

I am also very excited to be participating  in Earth Hour, which will be held this Saturday, 28 March, 2009 at 8:30pm.  People all the across the globe will be switching off their lights for exactly one hour in a global fight against climate change.  I think it is a fabulous concept!   Read more about it here

As the children will be in bed, I think I will relax on my veranda with a glass of the finest fermented grape and enjoy the silence.  How will you spend your Earth Hour?

  1. Good for you! We’re in!

    Yes, we managed most of the hour. It was pretty cool and we managed fine with candles. Typically, the usually energy-conscious parent decided to be difficult. “I always turn lights off so I don’t see why I have to now! This is ridiculous!” and words to that effect. P and I were so tired at 9.30 that we just went to bed rather than switch on the lights. Hope you enjoyed the silence.

    We enjoyed it too – but the children insisted on staying up – didn’t want to miss out on the fun of candle-light.
