Earth Hour is back, but with a difference.
What if we were to go beyond the hour? We could also stop leaving devices on standby, and be more savvy with the way we use electricity.
No matter what you are planning to do for Earth Hour this year, bear in mind that less is best. Do not use candles in place of lightbulbs because that could be even worse for the environment, especially when you are using a lead-wicked candle. I’ve also heard stories about people switching off the light, then switching on the air conditioning.
Earth Hour is a great time to be without distractions, and there are many creative ways to spend it, whether with family or oneself. This year, WWF Singapore has organised a walk, see details below.
Let’s be conscious about the way we use electricity, and make Earth Hour an everyday affair.
