Earth Hour


I'm sure that most of you have heard of Earth Hour by now. Millions of people all over the globe will be participating. Bare Oaks will also be participating.

Saturday March 29, 8 – 9 p.m.

We will turn off as many lights and other electrical devices for Earth Hour.

Even if you are not going to be at Bare Oaks, please participate by turning off lights and electrical devices wherever you are.

About Earth Hour

On March 31 2007, for one hour, Sydney made a powerful statement about the greatest contributor to global warming – coal-fired electricity – by turning off its lights. Over 2.2 million Sydney residents and over 2,100 businesses switched off, leading to a 10.2% energy reduction across the city. What began as one city taking a stand against global warming caught the attention of the world.

In 2008, 24 global cities will participate in Earth Hour at 8pm on March 29. Earth Hour is the highlight of a major campaign to encourage businesses, communities and individuals to take the simple steps needed to cut their emissions on an ongoing basis. It is about simple changes that will collectively make a difference – from businesses turning off their lights when their offices are empty, to households turning off appliances rather than leaving them on standby.
