earth hour - 8pm on the 29th of March

For those of you who may not already know, it’s earth hour this coming Saturday night.... Well, that is, in Australia. If you’re in the States or the UK or any other marvellous part of the world for that matter, then it’s 8pm on the 29th of March, your local time.

All you have to do is sign up on the web site and when earth hour rolls around, turn everything electrical off in your house. Lights, tv’s, dvd’s, ipods, kitchen white goods and yes even your beloved computer.

You could then light a candle or two or, as many are doing, gather with others and watch you local city lights switch off. I think it's going to be amazing.

This little clip may help explain where it all began (Sydney, Australia 2007). It may make you want to join in too. I hope so.

I've signed up, as you well know, and I'm looking forward to it.

Must dig out that box of matches for 8pm ease.

Yay, g!

Yay, Lottie!

I'm hoping lots of people participate.

Oops. And, thanks, Jennifer. Well spotted... I had the 29th in the heading but the 28th listed in the body text. It is, indeed, the 29th at 8pm everywhere, no matter where you are.

Enjoy!

cheers, lj

I did it too here in Ireland. Dublin participated wholeheartedly (as far as I can tell)in it. Great idea.

Hi wonderful Sew Green peeps! I couldn't find an email contact for you so sorry this isn't really related to this post...

Thought I'd let you know that you got a mention in the latest episode of the Craft Cartel Podcast http://radicalcrossstitch.com/2008/03/30/craft-cartel-podcast-episode-2-handmade-politics/

Keep up the awesome stuff.

It's interesting how Earth Day is such a big deal and it's being almost entirely ignored here in the UK.

I did a bit of hunting around to see if there were any events happening near me on that day, and after some time all I came back with was a 'green funeral expo' and a rubbish clearing exercise!
