Today, 28th March 2009 marks Earth Hour 2009. This year’s Earth Hour has been transformed into the world’s first global election between Earth and global warming!
Earth Hour is an international event organized by the WWF (World Wildlife Fund / World Wide Fund For Nature) and held on the last Saturday of March every year. During this event, households and businesses are urged to turn off their non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards energy conservation and the need to take action on climate change and global warming.
For the first time in history, people round the world have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote. Cool eh? If you switch off your lights, you vote for the Earth and if you decide to leave them on, then you are voting for global warming.
Many companies, hospitals and agencies round the world have thrown their weight behind the Earth Hour campaign by pledging to turn off the lights for one hour on 28th March. One company has even created one-of-a-kind eco-friendly, non-electrical EXIT SIGNS using the innovative photoluminescent technology. These exit signs manufactured by exitsigns.com glow in the dark, are code compliant, modern in design, are of high quality and best of all, help you save loads of money on electricity bill. The significance of changing your existing exit sign over to the one manufactured by exitsigns.com saves up to $40 per year of electricity costs and prevents up to 6 light bulbs per sign from being discarded and replaced.
So tell me, are you going to vote for the Earth or for global warming?
