Saturday, March 26th at 8pm until 9pm people will be coming together all over the world, shutting off their lights and everything electronic to show their commitment to the environment for one hour. Earth hour.
Last year we lit candles and hung out as a family during earth hour – it was peaceful and felt good doing our little part. Also a great opportunity to teach kids about energy saving and reminding about how turning off the lights and electronics when not in use on a daily basis can help conserve energy.
In honour of Earth Hour 2011 the Canada Museum of Science and Technology is hosting a fabulous FREE star party starting at 8:00pm.
Enjoy free coffee and hot chocolate, compliments of Bridgehead. Hydro Ottawa’s Ambassador of Electricity Conservation, the Conservation Owl, will be on hand with some special prizes.
It sounds like a fun time for everyone and a great opportunity to get together for a good cause. That is if you don’t have little ones heading to bed during earth hour.
We may not make the party due to conflicting bed time for luttle guy but we will still be doing our part and shutting down the electronics for Earth Hour.
