We plan to celebrate Earth Hour today by turning off all but the boys' essential nightlight and living by candlelight for an hour. In fact we might start early this evening so the boys' can experience a little Earth Hour darkness before bedtime. We'll talk about saving energy and other resources by turning off lights and faucets and conserving and reusing paper throughout the year.
Earth Hour is a global movement, symbolizing the impact people can have by making simple changes to help conserve resources. Earth Hour takes place from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. local time, wherever you happen to be on the globe. Go here for Earth Hour children's activities and information.
