Earth Hour 2009

Come on Malaysia, u can do it !!!!


Earth Hour is going global this year with many cities from around the globe taking part including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Canberra, Chicago, Toronto, Copenhagen, Christchurch, Manila, Suva and Kuala Lumpur. It's a global event and all the world's citizens can join in. Anyone can participate by turning off the lights on Saturday 28 March 2009 at 8.30pm for one hour.

Earth Hour is about taking simple steps everyday that collectively reduce carbon emissions - from businesses turning off their lights when their offices are empty to households turning off appliances rather than leaving them on standby.

Here are ten different ways to spend Earth Hour and reduce your greenhouse gas emissions:

1. Gather family & friends for a night picnic
2. Dine in one of the many Earth Hour participating restaurants by candlelight
3. Organise a family night playing board games
4. Throw an Earth Hour street party with your neighbours
5. Arrange a house party lit by torches
6. Take the dog for a night walk
7. Hand write a letter to loved one by lantern
8. Sit in the dark and share stories
9. Read a book using a book light
10. Share a romantic night in with your loved one
