We observed Earth Hour for the 8th time. My kids and I started participating every Earth Hour since 2009. I remembered the first time we participated in 2009. Our family shared a discussion over dinner why we were turning off the lights. During that time, it was already the second year since Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia. The mission of this movement is to unite the people around the world in protecting our planet, Earth.
Earth Hour is observed yearly one Saturday every March from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. As a family, we make it like an everyday thing. Not that we turn off the lights one hour a day but we make it a common practice to turn off the lights and unplugging electrical appliances if we are not using it. Just take part in every little way we can to help protect Mother Earth not only for the sake of this generation but for the future as well.
As homeschoolers, I also make it an opportunity to help educate my children the significance of Earth Hour and why we are doing it. Here is a video (you can’t see us here) of us talking about Earth Hour…
