I feel very sad that almost none of my friends or family observe Earth Hour. They just don’t get it. I don’t know why.
It was really getting me down because I would tell people it was on and why it was important but, each year there seemed to be someone who would spoil it for us. Well, last year I decided to put my foot down. I knew that I needed to do something to let people know that we are doing something that is important (even if only to us). I decided that each Earth Hour night I would put three jars with tea lights across my driveway. Its my sign to let people around us know that we are observing Earth Hour.
Its just a simple idea but it seems to be working!
We also decided to take Earth Hour a little further by switching off for the entire evening. Its not hard to do especially if you have some good company to share it with.
I love looking down my driveway looking at the beautiful glowing jars. Imagine if everyone did this. How beautiful would our streets be for that evening?
Do you observe Earth Hour?
What do you get up to?
