Earth Day 2013

Earth Day 2013

Earth Day 2013

 

Happy Earth Day Greenies!!!! It is the 43rd annual Earth Day and we should all be celebrating. Not with a party or making a mess but with intelligence. Today make sure you let everyone you come across know what day it is. Try to learn something new about how you can help our world be a better place. Everyone, including this Beagle right here can give you all of the tips and ideas on how to make your Earth Day/everyday greener and more Earth friendly but the only real answer to helping is education. Today to celebrate you should try to show someone who generally doesn’t know about or care about the holiday why it is so important. Even if you can convince them to make one tiny change in their life that is more than enough.

Also make a point of educating yourself. Learn something new about being greener and try to implement that in your daily routine.  All of the fun activities and books and green purchases are great but if you aren’t keeping yourself educated what is the point.  It is easy to forget or be complacent especially when you see others not making an effort.  Ideally we should consider everyday Earth Day but on days like today we should make a point of letting our green show!  Make a point today of letting people know what day it is and share even the smallest tid bit of greenness with them.  Sharing is caring!!!

EARTH HOUR

Host: myEARTH360
Type: Causes – Rally
Network: Global
Date: Saturday, March 27, 2010
Time: 8:30pm – 9:30pm
Location: GLOBAL

Description On Earth Hour hundreds of millions of people, organizations, corporations and governments will come together to make a bold statement about their concern for climate change by doing something quite simple—turning off their lights for one hour. Earth Hour symbolizes that by working together, each of us can have a positive impact in the fight against climate change, protecting our future and that of future generations.

In the U.S. where the impacts of climate change are already being felt, Earth Hour sends a message that Americans care about this issue and stand with the world in seeking to find solutions to the escalating climate crisis because if we don’t, who will.

Participation is easy. By flipping off your light switch on March 27th at 8:30 p.m. (your local time wherever you are) you will be casting your vote for action on climate change. We also encourage you to unplug everything… and start earlier, go all night!

Since its inception three years ago, Earth Hour’s non-partisan approach has captured the world’s imagination and became a global phenomenon. Nearly one billion people turned out for Earth Hour 2009 – involving 4,100 cities in 87 countries on seven continents.

Last year, 80 million Americans and 318 U.S. cities officially voted for action with their light switch, joining iconic landmarks from around the world that went dark for Earth Hour, including:

* Empire State Building
* Brooklyn Bridge
* Broadway Theater Marquees
* Las Vegas Strip
* United Nations Headquarters
* Golden Gate Bridge
* Seattle’s Space Needle
* Church of Latter-Day Saints Temple
* Gateway Arch in St. Louis
* Great Pyramids of Giza
* Acropolis and Parthenon in Athens
* Christ the Redeemer Statue in Rio de Janeiro
* St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City
* Big Ben and Houses of Parliament in London
* Elysee Palace and Eiffel Tower in Paris
* Beijing’s Birds Nest and Water Cube
* Symphony of Lights in Hong Kong
* Sydney’s Opera House
