Several readers have posted comments suggesting I look into Earth Hour US. It’s an effort to raise awareness, participants will turn off their lights for one hour on Friday March 29th at 8pm. It’s a small step, of course, but I think we can all learn from taking small steps.
A few years ago, we started taking small steps in our household to conserve energy. Our energy usage continues to fall, year over year since we started; we continue to become more and more aware of how we use energy that provides no benefit. I’ll bet we use at least 1/3 less energy now than in the past, yet none of the changes we have made have made any significant impact on how we live our life. It all started with a relatively small step.
Put the date on your calendar and join the others across the world taking this small first step.
