    We should (each & everyone) all participate in earth our then only we can save a little bit of energy. If we can switch off our lights, fans, A/c’s and other electrical equipments for at least one hour a week then we can so much of energy.

    We were very excited about Earth Hour this year! It seems like the green movement is really starting to take off exponentially. With prices of gas on the move and the necessity of alternative energy becoming more dire than ever, next Earth Hour should be even greater. Then again, we should be observing this hour more than just once a year of course.
