Earth Hour 2015: How Will You Use Your Power?

March 4, 2015

After attending the Earth Hour 2015 Press Conference last week, I became a superhero and I thought of using my power to promote living green and conservation of resources (I should have also add, making smart choices!)

Everyone can be a superhero by participating in the Earth Hour.. but then again, why confine ourselves to (limited) time when we can #GoBeyondtheHour?

Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney Australia. It is a lights-off event to raise awareness about climate change. The campaign is now being supported in 162 countries and territories worldwide. But then again, we don’t need to wait for Earth Hour to allot only an hour of sacrifice without light – the little things we do, simple acts and our lifestyle can contribute a lot to helping preserve the environment. 

I know for a fact that this planet would soon deteriorate, but we can delay this process.. very much like how we try to age with grace.

The Earth Hour 2015 Press Conference was hosted by Marc Nelson and (the very funny!) Rovilson Fernandez!  Mikee Cojuangco-Jaworski also joined the event and lead the pledge-taking of the sponsors. 

Marco Lambertini, Director General of WWF International joined the event straight from his flight. Mayor Herbert Bautista also shared his thoughts about the advocacy. The Earth Hour 2015 will be held in Quezon City Circle.
Shout out to these sponsors for supporting the Earth Hour! 
During the event, lights were turned off as we watched the story of the people in Palawan who rely on kerosene gas lamps to light up their homes. These gas lamps do harm in the environment (and might start fire!). With your help and donation, we can help provide electricity to this area via solar panels. If you wish to donate, simply go here:
Everyone is taking part on this campaign, you should join too!

I know lifestyle change is really difficult especially if there are so many distractions. But small acts can make big difference. Let’s go!
