Earth Hour, Earth Day, Earth Living

March 28, 2009 at 8:30pm, Earth Hour , a global collaborative, will take place: around the world people will switch off their lights for one hour.  This simple, non-lifestyle-changing event will signify how, if we work together, a monumental revolution can be made in our global efforts to participate in climate change.  “The (2008) movement captured the public’s imagination with lights going out at some of the world’s most iconic landmarks including the Sydney Opera House, Bangkok’s Wat Arun Buddhist temple, the Coliseum in Rome, Stockholm’s Royal Castle, London’s City Hall, New York’s Empire State Building, Sears Tower in Chicago and the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.”

April 22, 2009’s Earth Day will be the 39thanniversary of our once nationwide (now worldwide) response to environmental issues.  The message: collectively we can make this global day of action and participation a commitment to ecological responsibility.  There are countless events and activities happening around the world.  To find or initiate an event near you to protect the future of our planet, visit, the Earth Day site.

So, what happens when Earth Hour and Earth Day unite? Cool People Care is a cleverly, hip site that offers information on events, activities, and volunteering opportunities in your area.  Their philosophy is undemanding: saving the world 5 minutes at a time. Their quick and easy to change green habits can be delivered directly to your email. What drew me to their site was their amalgamation of Earth Hour and Earth Day to create, EH2ED (Earth Hour to Earth Day) Challenge. The idea: you can save the Earth each day by making smart, easy changes.  If you register for the challenge , Cool People will email you green information highlighting an organization, a program, an initiative or a resource that can help you develop eco-friendly habits and behaviors so that you can live a more caring lifestyle.”

With this shared global responsibility to preserve the planet, Earth Hour and Earth Day bring people together who want to take better care of the environment.  Earth Promise is the ideal community to make your promises and connect with like-minded people.

    We should all make a promise on http://www.earthpromise.com to turn our lights off in support of Earth Hour between 8:30 and 9:30PM and keep that promise.

    When we are all together on March 28, we will pick a time and turn off our lights for one hour and think about our EARTH and all the things EARTH gives us.
