I love Earth Hour! I turn off and unplug my electronics when not in use daily, and leave most lights turned off most of the time. :}
No electric lights during the day, unless I'm in a room without any windows -- like my bathroom. Helps save energy, plus I prefer natural light, anyway!

Those of us who recognize our connection to the ocean and to the animals that call it home have a greater responsibility than ever before to protect it.

Julie Packard, executive director at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, has posted a commentary on oceans and climate change at HuffingtonPost.com. You can read The Untold Story of Climate Change: No Time to Lose for Our Oceans on their website. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/julie-packard/the-untold-story-of-clima_b_184003.html

Just Say No to Plastic Bottles

Americans consume more than 2.5 million bottles of water every hour.

Only around 10% are recycled, which means we are throwing away more than $1 billion worth of plastic a year.
Also, plastic water bottles require 1.5 million barrels of oil each year to make.

Zola carries the world's only stainless steel filtered water bottle, made by EcoUsable.

The straw top filter removes up to 99.99% of pollutants for up to 100 gallons of great tasting filtered water.

Drink from tap water, streams, rivers, lakes, and pools - everything but salt water. go here for more info

Don't Leave Home Without Your Reusable Bag

In the U.S. alone, we throw away 100 billion plastic bags each year -- the equivalent of 12 million barrels of oil.

Buy Local and Organic Food

The best organic food is what's grown closest to you. Use Local Harvest : http://www.localharvest.org/ to find farmers' markets, family farms, CSA programs and other sources of sustainably grown food in your area, where you can buy produce, grass-fed meats, and many other goodies.

Save Our Future From Being Flushed Down the Toilet

Did you know that it takes 90 years to grow a box of tissues? That's right, every time you blow your nose, you are wiping away ancient forests.

And every time you use toilet paper you're flushing old growth trees down the toilet.


Recycled tissue products help protect ancient forests, clean water, and wildlife habitat. It's easier on the Earth to make tissues from paper instead of trees.

Climate Change Message Echoed Around the World

Millions of Americans and people around the world cast a decisive vote for action on climate change by turning off their lights for Earth Hour 2009. The biggest environmental demonstration in history involved 3,937 cities and towns in 88 countries. From an Antarctic research station to the Great Pyramids of Egypt and the Smithsonian Castle in Washington, D.C., iconic landmarks went dark to highlight the threat of climate change. The world's leaders didn't overlook this monumental event: Just days after Earth Hour, the American Clean Energy and Security Act was introduced. This is a major first step toward a strong climate bill that will cut emissions, jumpstart a new clean energy economy, and strengthen the ability of the Obama administration to negotiate a fair and effective global climate deal this December in Copenhagen.

my boyfriend and I used Earth Hour to drive around Denver and watch the lights go out. Nice. How about getting city government to turn out unnecessary street lights, etc.

Obama plans climate change summit
Sunday, March 29, 2009


Mr Obama hopes to create a global consensus on greenhouse emissions
US President Barack Obama has invited figures from the world's 16 major economies to Washington for a meeting on climate change at the end of April.
The event will be the first meeting of what the White House styles "the Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate".

It will focus on increasing the supply of clean energy and cutting greenhouse gas emissions, the White House said. It was announced as millions worldwide observed Earth Hour, turning off lights in a protest against climate change.

The Washington meeting is scheduled to take place on 27-28 April and the sessions will culminate in a July meeting in Italy. International agreement

The forum - which will bring together representatives of the 16 major economies and the UN secretary general - is designed to help broker a UN agreement on global warming, the White House said in a statement.

It aims to create dialogue between nations and "help generate the political leadership necessary to achieve a successful outcome at the UN climate change negotiations that will convene this December in Copenhagen", the statement said.

That pact that would take over from the Kyoto Protocol - an international agreement setting targets for industrialised countries to cut their greenhouse gas emissions.
