Have you signed on to join Earth Hour TONIGHT from 8:30pm - 9:30pm? It's as simple as turning off your electricity for just one hour of your life. Millions of people and thousands of communities from 120 countries have pledged to send a message about climate change. (Please don't say, "Global warming is a hoax; look at all that snow this winter!" Massive snow, earthquakes, tsunamis--It's all related, folks!)
Earth Hour is about sending the message that we must create a cleaner, safer, more secure future for the planet for generations to come. More than 1200 landmarks including the Sydney Opera House, Bird's Nest Stadium, Great Pyramids, Eiffel Tower, Niagara Falls, Mount Rushmore, and the Golden Gate Bridge will all be going dark.
My husband and I have decided to use this as a stay-in date night opportunity. The kids will be in bed and we'll spend at least one hour just reconnecting with one another. Maybe a fire, maybe a bubble bath by candle light--well you don't need any more details than that. What a great excuse to do something good for the planet and your marriage.
