Save the date: March 26. Earth Hour is back.

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.

  • About Green Drinks Singapore

    Founded in November 2007, Green Drinks Singapore is one of more than 800 cities with a Green Drinks presence.

  • We are a non-profit environmental movement that connects academia, green businesses, activists, community and government, for knowledge sharing and collaboration opportunities. We do this by organising informal talks every last Thursday of the month, over drinks! Once in a while, we hold discussions, documentary screenings and workshops to further engage the public and participants.
  • Started in 1989 in London, the Green Drinks movement is a self-organising network that is meant to be simple and unstructured. The global site can be found at www.greendrinks.org.
