Earth Hour

{what will you be doing during Earth Hour? image from The Moore's flikr stream}

Earth Hour 2010 is here, and, as stated by yesterday's Globe & Mail, it has become the largest social movement in history.  That's pretty great, especially as participation climbs globally every year, as more people unite in a stand against climate change.  Here's the thing though...lets not limit our stand to just one night.  While I would say our progress in the last few years has been substantial, like the omnipresence of they recycled logo, or the reusable shopping bag, that ever-evolving fashion accessory must-have, I'm left with how far we still have to go, and how quickly we have to do it.  So, turn your lights off tonight at 8:30 (local time) for one hour and let it inspire you to keep it rolling.  Oh, and if you're going to light a candle, make it beeswax, which is healthier for you and the planet.  What will you be doing during Earth Hour?  Make it a family tradition...take the time to spend time together...oh, and I'm still trying to figure out how to make smores carbon free, cause you can't beat family get-together's that involve smore making.
