Hello everyone, Dove here! Earth Hour happens TONIGHT from 8:30pm to 9:30pm EST! During this hour, people, organizations, and businesses all across the globe will be turning off their lights. I will be participating as well, from my dorm room here at SCAD. Every student here has been notified about Earth Hour. I already try to reduce the amount of electricity I use in my dorm, and tonight, I will be turning everything off, including unplugging most of my electronics (because just having something plugged in but off can still consume electricity, costing you hundreds over the course of months and years!).

THANK YOU to those who have already participated in Earth Hour in your respective time zone. I encourage everyone across the globe to continue the wave of conservation in their time zone tonight. It's easy and it's fun! Light some candles and relax or read. Turn on some flashlights, and tell ghost stories with your kids! If the weather is nice, go outside and look at the stars! If many in your area are also participating, there probably aren't as many lights blotting out the sky's celestial bodies. If you have an outdoor fire pit, roast some marshmallows! There's so much that you can do with this hour! Enjoy it!

This is just one easy thing that all of us can do to help the cycle of conservation and keep our natural resources and habitats lush and bountiful for centuries to come! Ideally, this kind of thing should be done every day, but maybe we can all try to do this once a month. Imagine the impact that would have if everyone on Earth committed to THAT! Our wallets would be much fuller, and our Earth would be greener, that's for sure!

Happy Earth Hour!
