Earth Hour 2009 - 28 March


At work, we will start on Friday 27 March through the weekend. At home, 28 March Saturday from 8:30 till 9:30 PM.

According to our associate director, "In 2008, NSI [Northern Sydney Institute] reduced its electricity use by 5% on 2007 levels . That’s a saving of 927 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions. We also purchase 6% of our electricity from renewable energy sources, saving an additional 1,012 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions. We want to improve on this in 2009."

I guess every bit counts. If you are off somewhere, donG I hope you will turning off most of appliances off before you go on a road trip. At least you are off and enjoying yourself somewhere and not consuming power at home...

By the way, I saw the Philippines on the EH 2009 world map... there are lots of supporters out there and I am glad Pinoys are one of them!

Definitely Sidney! I find that some families do that every Friday, just an excuse to have family bonding away from cell phones, games, computers and TV.
