A couple of weeks ago I got an email from Virgin Mobile, my cell carrier, about Earth Hour. From 8:00 to 9:00 tomorrow evening we will turn off all the lights and our appliances (except our Nintendo DSes) and sit in the dark.I like this idea. Lately I’ve been making a habit of trying to reduce and resuse a little bit more than usual. I use reusable cloth shopping bags and put small groceries in my jacket pockets. I turn off lights when I’m not using them. I turn off the tap while I brush my teeth.
I’d like to make a weekly habit of Earth Hour. Fridays at 8:00pm, ending at 9:00pm, just in time for jPod.
What do you do to reduce consumption of power and materials? It’s pretty easy and it makes you appreciate the things you’ve got, I find.
Derr, it’s Saturday, not Friday.
