Looking for Sustainability ideas

I thought I find a way to keep costs down while still trying to stay eco-friendly. Trying to keep striving for sustainability. This a record of that journey.

Sometimes blunt and straight forward then sometimes sarcastic

Earth hour

World Wildlife Fund's global initiative where individuals, schools, organizations, businesses and governments turn off their lights for one hour to make a stand  on climate change.
Last year over 80 million people (just in the US) 4000 cities, 87 countries turned off their lights for a hour.  Earth hour.

This year Earth Hour  is March 27 at 8:30 PM local time for a hour people will turn off their lights for a hour.  Places like The city of Cleveland,  Goddard School, government buildings, and Cleveland State University in my area. Places like Mount Rushmore, The space Needle, and even the Empire State Building! Musicians Linkin Park, Alanis Morissette, Coldplay, Wynonna Judd, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Lady Antebellum, Finger Eleven, Simple Plan, The Veronicas and Rise Against also turned off their lights.



 I have to work........... We close at 8:30, so we do turn off the non-essential lights for the most part.  But I work be at work for the hour.  The girls forgot last year so we did it when I got home a  half a hour late, but did it for a full hour. Candles and no TV.  The sky was cloudy but we still just went in the mud room and looked at the sky.  Not to many people on our block turned off the lights..... sad.

Join me by signing up for Earth Hour
