Earth Hour 2015 – Today!

Today is one day…to remember that Earth, our planet, needs us…more than ever before! A part of change, she is undergoing, is because of our activity…our development, n our mess…!
So let’s make a statement – even though symbolic, today on Earth hour…
Let’s switch off non-essential lights and electrical appliances tonight…at 8:30pm for 1 hr.
Let’s b a part of this global event, happening in 100 countries.
As we cut on fuel and emissions, during that ‘prime hour’, we remind ourselves and tell younger generation…that we can still curb ‘global warming’ and hence mitigate’ climate change’.

We Participate…We Care!
