Where were you when the lights went out?
The world recently took part in Earth Hour, which started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million homes and businesses turned their lights off for one hour to make their stand against climate change. Only a year later and Earth Hour had become a global sustainability movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries participating.
My favourite thing about it, is that many places celebrate by having a massive Fireworks display, which to me, seems to go against the whole movement somewhat. Both Sydney & Seatlle did that this year. But I do like the pretty lights….
I support the movement due to the public awareness it raises, but I personally feel that it still allows the average person to participate and then forget about what they can do to help save the planet, for another 12 months.
I truly hope I am wrong, and the attitudes of the peoples of the world begin to change.
Anyway, while the lights were off, I got creative! I made some shirt designs and stuff, to help make the world brighter and more fun. Yay for me!
They make excellent gifts and will also increase your coolness quotient by a factor of 22.
Also, the money raised will help fund me to do some art classes and make better/funnier comics, which is something that I am sure you all want.
