This Saturday, March 26, from 8:30 PM to 9:30 PM, the Dems will be shutting off all of our lights and gathering in Lowell Courtyard to celebrate the international recognition of Earth Hour (http://www.earthhour.org/Homepage.aspx). Though we all would like to say that we try to do all that we can each hour of every day to conserve energy and protect the environment, we admit there is always more that can be done. This hour we will gather to recognize what we already do and promote doing MORE.
Though our lights may soon switch back on after our celebration of Earth Hour has expired (Harvard students do, after all, have to study and, unfortunately, candlelit study sessions aren’t exactly condoned by Harvard fire regulations), we are nonetheless thinking of the many ways to make the spirit of the hour last.
This year, we hope you will join us in extending the energy of Earth Hour in the next month, to Earth Day (April 22, 2011), and beyond! At 8:30 PM on Saturday night, don’t just shut off your lights for the hour, but consider adopting one of the following resolutions to promote environmental friendliness:
1. Eat less meat (or none at all!).
2. Study in communal spaces.
3. Use a travel mug or water bottle.
4. Print double-sided, and when you can – don’t print at all!
5. Join the movement.
Although we encourage you to keep up these habits all 8,765 hours of the year, try adopting them from Earth Hour through Earth Day as a start – we know you can, and we certainly will!
