Earth Hour 2012

I was so excited to find the new video for Earth Hour 2012.

It is one of my favourite times of year and I love the connection with the rest of world.
Earth Hour asks one small thing, turn off your lights from 8.30 to 9.30pm on Saturday March 31st 2012. We usually go further and turn all our power off but that is our personal choice.

Last year I spent an afternoon in Mikayla's class the week of Earth Hour,we looked at the history of Earth Hour, did activities on food miles and planted up heritage seeds in handmade tubes.
This year we will be throwing a huge Earth Hour party with activities for kids and adults.We might even try to build a new wicking bed or a pond that I would love to incorporate into the garden.

Last year Earth Hour incorporated Beyond the Hour. What could you do beyond Earth Hour to continue your commitment to helping the planet? Our commitment this year has been the No Supermarkets Challenge. By avoiding shopping centres and supermarkets we have reduced our packaging waste, created more business for local suppliers and taken another step close to the connection with our food/products.

So spread the word, we have time to let everyone know.This is one small thing that we all can do to show the world our support for a better planet.
