Did anybody drive around Sydney on Saturday night to see our famous buildings and landmarks switch off their lights for Earth Hour?
If you haven’t seen it before, it is certainly an unusual sight and one that is hoped will help provide a change in people’s habits for the future.
Because Earth Hour isn’t just about turning off our lights for one hour, it’s about spreading the message of environmental sustainability and encouraging people to think about what they can do to help reduce our impact on the environment.
Whether you took park in Earth Hour this year or not, now is a good time to start thinking about what you can do to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Even making a small change like switching lights off when they’re not in use, or catching public transport instead of driving, can help us cut down on our environmental impact.
So start thinking about what you can do to help protect our planet and “take action beyond the hour”. If you visit the Earth Hour website
there are plenty of ideas on how you can start living a more sustainable lifestyle.
