Earth Hour Is Less Than a Week Away
March 27, 2012
What are you doing for Earth Hour?
On March 31, from 8:30 to 9:30 PM, millions of people and organizations will turn off all non-essential lights for the sixth annual Earth Hour. The event is organized by the World Wildlife Fund on the last Saturday in March each year, and according to the WWF website, it has become “the world’s single largest campaign for the planet.”
This year’s Earth Hour features an interesting new twist with its “I Will If You Will” contest. IWIYW challenges people to “dare” their social media connections to help the Earth in exchange for some kind of stunt: “I’ll wear whatever my daughter tells me to IF… 5,000 people commit to recycling in 2012,” “I’ll get in the water with a great white shark IF… 10,000 people give up plastic bags and straws for 2012,” “I will play the piano live on the web for 8 hours nonstop IF… you will start recycling,” etc.
As a company that spends every day working toward the sustainable future, Harvest loves this kind of thing! Biogas will one day contribute a large part of North America’s energy supply, and in countries like Germany, it already powers a significant portion of homes and businesses – these are the types of clean energy advancements that programs like Earth Hour are designed to encourage.
Harvest will be joining in on the fun with a Facebook contest and giveaway, so stay tuned to our Facebook page and Twitter handle for details. While you’re at it, let us know what you’re doing for Earth Hour!
