Earth Hour is a yearly event that is held on the last Saturday of March when people turn off their lights for one hour in support of mother nature. What started in Sydney, Australia in 2007 has spread all around the world with more than 5,200 cities and towns in 135 countries worldwide switched off their lights for Earth Hour 2011 alone.
This is a fantastic stat! It shows that more and more people are getting more aware of the cause and i personally belief that this is an awareness campaign, a campaign to get more and more people aware of the need to do our parts as individuals so that collectively we can make a change.
This is the 5th year for Earth Hour, in Malaysia its 4th year. It started in Malaysia in 2009 and its picked up so much and its brilliant to see many supporting the cause. What is not very nice is that people still hitting out that its a big drama and how its a waste of energy etc … Well, while everyone is entitled to their opinion it makes you wonder if the “noise makers” are living a true sustainable lifestyle or simply don’t have enough friends and need the attention.
I congratulate WWF globally and WWF-Malaysia locally for their hard work in making Earth Hour as big as it is. It’s no easy feat, i know that for sure. Earth Hour is not the solution but it is a powerful tool that makes us all aware that we need to do something and the organization that started the campaign are well aware of this and keep reiterating that it’s the start so that we can “live green”
Happy Earth Hour 2012 everyone, i hope everyone educates just one other person and we take part and support this movement. After all it is one that is extremely important and can help our planet!
Earth Hour is back! My favourite environmental event which i had the opportunity of working on when it was first launch happens on every last Saturday of March. Its on the 26th of March between 8.30pm-9.30pm , the world will be turning off its lights for one hour in support of our planet!
The campaign this year is calling for everyone to go beyond the 1 hour and to do more for our planet and for our future ultimately. Head on to livegreen.wwf.org.my and while your at it, share it with your friends and family and lets make this the biggest that we have seen so far!
Wishing everyone a Happy Deepavali. Its a great time to get together with family and friends, enjoy the festivities and the fantastic food that goes with it!
I don’t know if its just me, but it seems that less and less people are celebrating the festivals like we used too. I personally feel that its important for us to celebrate like we used too, lets not let the spirit die off and while you are at it, invite your friends to enjoy the festivities with you and your family as well!
If you are driving , drive safe and be safe if fireworks come into play
Earth Hour 2010 in Malaysia was last night. It was not as hyped as 2009 which was our inaugural participation but that is totally understandable considering this is our 2nd year taking part, the country know about the event and will take part or dont.
Make your rounds on facebook and you see soo many supporting and some skeptics but that is their right. Its ok for those who think its PR stunt to feel that way, if they dont know why Earth Hour happens. For me its a very important event. Its a chance for the entire world to come together for that one hour and turn off our lights for one hour in support of our planet.
Which other event, can turn the lights off the biggest landmarks bring world leaders, make large corporations to say..We Vote Earth? Earth Hour does just that!

On Earth Hour hundreds of millions of people will come together to call for action on climate change by doing something quite simple—turning off their lights for one hour. The movement symbolizes that by working together, each of us can make a positive impact in this fight, protecting our future and that of future generations.
This year Earth Hour falls on the 27th of March 2010 at 8.30pm. It is led by WWF Internationally and WWF-Malaysia,here at home. In my opinion this is the one of the most important events that will raise the bar and awareness about climate change and how each and everyone has a part to play in the future of our planet.
