Let’s Up the Ante on Earth Hour!

The worldwide Earth Hour movement officially started last 2008. Since then, many of us have marked our calendars for the yearly event on March to switch off the lights for an hour, as a way to combat the serious environmental issues our world faces. Even big companies and restaurants rallied behind this cause. If there is any good that this devastating environmental issue has brought us it is the chance to unite a planet divided by race, religion, political beliefs, etc. towards one goal – to save our home.

It’s been 6 years of shutting off our lights – how about we up the ante a bit? How about instead of turning off the lights for an hour, we turn off our smartphones, laptops, TVs, tablets and all other sources of technological distractions? How about we remove ourselves from the allure of fast-paced Facebook updates and tweets that come and go quicker than you can take a deep breath?

How about we turn Earth hour into a family hour as well? When was the last time we sat down with our family and just had a meal filled only by the clattering of plates and lively conversation? No beeps, no alarms, no game tunes… just old school talk. The destruction of our family bonds is almost as devastating as the destruction of our planet so how about we tackle both problems in that one hour?

Would you join me in this rally for the next level of Earth Hour?
