Join the Millions for Earth Hour 2011

Earth Hour began in 2007 in Australia when over 2.2 million people made a statement about climate change by turning off their lights for one hour. Since then, hundreds of millions have participated in the event each year.

Earth Hour 2011 begins Saturday, March 26 at 8:30PM. Turn off your lights for one hour. After that, maybe begin to wonder what else can be done...

  1. Thanks for the reminder. Lights will be going off tonight.

  2. @Greenearth

    We'll be sitting in the dark with perhaps a candle. :)

  3. Thank you for the reminder.

  4. Thanks for the reminder. Candlelight sounds romantic!

  5. I am glad you posted the reminder. I do this gladly each year. I do not usually have lights on in the house at night anyway, but the computer and TV can go off too!

    We are also going to turn off some of our other go that extra distance.

  7. Happy to have found you on Blotanical.
    It's a lively place to spend time!

  8. @Alice Joyce

    I am enjoying it! It is so nice to meet other gardeners like you.

  9. A small simple thing from each and everyone of us will mean a lot to the Blue Planet. Great post!

  10. wish someone could get a video from space as the lights go out.

  11. @p3chandan

    Indeed! It really is a very small thing. Thanks!

  12. A token hour that will hopefully inspire us all to rethink our energy consumption. Wonderful you posted this. Thank you!

  13. @Carol
    Yes, and if we can see that it really doesn't take that much...maybe we can, indeed, do more. Thanks for visiting!

  14. The Earth Day is not familiar in Japan, unfortunately.
    But the movement for saving electricity is getting popular since the temporally black-out are planed due to shortage of power which was caused by the massive earthquakes.

  15. It would be nice if governments and municipalities were involved and switched off all the streetlights too!

    Welcome to blotanical :)

    I am sure it must be difficult for all of you in Japan. Some of our most difficult times are teaching moments, however what you are experiencing there in Japan goes way beyond what anyone should have to endure.

  17. @James Stapley
    That would be nice if governments participated. I think if they did, they would inspire more to participate as well.
