Earth Hour 2010

This is what my twitter default photo switched to automatically during ‘earth hour’ today:

Something so small, but every little thing helps to raise awareness for such a major problem we are all facing with the climate.

This is something similar to what Google did two years ago, and I blogged about that too. Read that here.

This time though, people got to choose to participate in it themselves through their social networks. Facebook had something similar. This was a great thing for those people who want to do something for the cause, but don’t know what…. just by raising awareness.

Last year, we closed off all of the lights and turned off all the unnecessary electronics and left our house to go to a public place, but this year we had guests over so we could not shut off everything.

Did you guys participate this year?

I did not use my computer for several hours and had it turned off (purposefully) and my cell phone was turned off (not on purpose… it just kind of happened), which are TWO major things for me!

Read my blog posts from the past two years on Earth Hour here (2009) and here (2008).

P.S. Don’t forget to leave me a comment below on your thoughts! As always, I’d love to hear from you.

  1. We were actually out for dinner at someone&#39;s house during that time, but I made sure to turn off all the lights back at our house!<br /><br />I just wish the sky hadn&#39;t been cloudy that night tho… 🙁
