Earth Hour

Posted on by Emily Redmond

 

Do you have a spare hour this weekend? Tomorrow, Saturday 29th March, marks the 7th annual Earth Hour and we have our alarms set to ensure we don’t miss this incredible global initiative.

 

Since 2007, the World Wild Fund (WWF) have been able to spread the important message of climate change impact across the globe, with 154 countries expected to participate this year.

 

We encourage the WeWood community to become involved in this movement. It's so easy to get involved! You can partake by simply switching off your lights for the one hour between 8:30pm-9:30pm local time.

 

You can also support the initiative by taking the Earth Hour pledge or donate here.

 

If you need more incentive to participate here are four more important reasons:

 

(1)  It will prevent tonnes of emissions from entering the atmosphere, while also spreading an important message.

(2)  A chance to consider lifestyle changes to cut your energy usage by appreciating the luxuries.

(3)  Opportunity to take a stand and make a difference.

(4)  Simple changes can have a large impact. In 2013, Bangkok recorded a 1,699 MW reduction, which eliminated approximately 1,073 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions!!

 

 While switching off a light may seem like no big deal, we can all make an impact with everything we do in our daily lives.
