Here at Better World Books, we are all about doing our part to save the environment. That said, I know sometimes the whole thing can get overwhelming. You’re not sure how to help and which little thing will really matter. I can assure you they all do. You’re efforts to recycle, turn the water off when you brush your teeth and buy books from us all matter.
Now there is something even easier you can do. Vote Earth. All you have to do is turn your lights off for one hour. On Saturday March 28th from 8:30PM to 9:30PM just flip your light switches to off and you are voting for earth over global warming.
This is the third year of Earth Hour, which started in Sydney in 2007 with 2.2 million homes turning their lights off, grew to a global effort last year with 50 million joining in, and has a goal of 1 billion people turning their lights off this year. Help ‘em out. It’s easy, meaningful, and the candlelight could be fun.
