turn off lights, turn off computers

March 30, 2008

coming up on Earth Hour 8pm last Saturday in March:

lights off

computers off

IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY, now’s the time to get in the habit of flipping off the switch on powerbars, turning off lights and watching energy juice and use…while we still can!

    Good for you for taking part in Earth Hour!

    I hope that you will continue thinking about the environment and do more to reduce your carbon footprint. One of the quickest and most effective ways to reduce your contribution to climate change is to stop eating meat and dairy products. Animal agriculture is responsible for 18% of all greenhouse gases, that’s more than all the world’s transport systems!

    There are other advantages of a plant based diet too. You can improve your health, save grain and crops to feed to starving people instead of animals and, of course, there are huge benefits to animals.

    Give it a go!

    Baby and I unplugged everything in the house (except the fridge), and sat around by candlelight talking… well, for a little while until we realized, hey, this is kind of romantic.

    Our neighbors down the street all got together in the park and lit a stove and made hot chocolate for all the neighbor kids.

    There were a few events downtown, performances by candlelight… one was a dance piece, I think. Next year, I want to have a candlelight sing-a-long!

    sounds sweet!!

    i was impressed by the number of creative ideas people were doing and hope to be more involved next year!

    good for you for unplugging everything! i didn’t go that far–but if the monkeys had been home, we might have. as it was, they loved coming home to a candlelit house!
