As I type this, we’re 10 days, 8 Hours, 13 minutes, 13, 12, 11 seconds away from Earth Hour 2008.
What is Earth Hour 2008?
On the site, EarthHour.org, the story goes:
“It started with a question: How can we inspire people to take action on climate change?
The answer: Ask the people of Sydney to turn off their lights for one hour.”
In 2008, however, Earth Hour is a global event!
So how can one hour of darkness for one day a year make a difference?
Last year’s Sydney Earth Hour resulted in a 10.2% CO2 reduction, more than double they’re goal!
The folks at EarthHour.org hope that this global event will inspire people around the world to take action for more than just an hour, one day a year.
Check out ways you can live green for more than just an hour everyday at work, home, and even school!
Simple Steps to Living Green for More Than an Hour:

- Refill your inkjet and even laser cartridges
- Install a programmable thermostat
- …and much, much more
Are you going to or have you pledged to take part in Earth Hour 2008? What are some of your favorite, fun, cheap ways to live green?
I think every little step toward living green is an awesome one… but eco-snobbery sucks! My goal is to help newbies learn the most important steps toward living green — individually and collectively. Personally, I strive to have as little impact as possible on Planet Earth while I'm here.
