Earth Hour 2009

Did you join Earth Hour?

Last March 28, 2009 at 8:30PM, 88 countries across 25 different time zones participated in this noble effort by switching off its lights for 60 minutes. Suprisingly, Philippines became a top participant in this year's event. Over 15 million Filipinos over 650 major towns and cities throughout the country participated. This record-breaking and noble event was documented in an article that I read in WWF says Philippines tops Earth Hour 2009.

My family and I on the other hand were unable to participate in Earth Hour this year since we were not home. But if we were home, we would have wanted to join the whole world in switching off our lights for 60 minutes. Vince and I were with our daughter at her last night's ballet recital rehearsal before the big performance the next day. CCP (Cultural Center of the Philippines) was unable to shut off its lights for an hour since all were busy for the program the next day. But it was nice to see the establishments in the area all go dim for an hour to observe it.

Earth Hour is a reminder to all of us to always try in our daily lives to conserve energy, water and resources so that future generations can enjoy it too. We can do this in our own little way such as turning off the faucet while brushing our teeth, turning off the lights when you leave the room and many more ways. Let us all try to save our Earth because it's the only one we have.
