Where – Everywhere!

Earth Hour ambassador Miranda Kerr has hijacked MySpace. And she’s here to deliver a message to everyone so listen up!
From its inception as a single-city initiative — Sydney, Australia – in 2007, Earth Hour has grown into a global symbol of hope and movement for change. Earth Hour 2010 created history as the world’s largest ever voluntary action with people, businesses and governments in 128 countries across every continent coming together to celebrate an unambiguous commitment to the one thing that unites us all — the planet.
Sign up to earthhour.org, switch off your lights for Earth Hour 2011, and share the positive actions you will sustain for earth beyond the hour.
Earth Hour ambassador Miranda Kerr shared with us her recommendation for Earth Hour
Some of the things that I recommend we can do in our homes:
* Buy local produce from markets thereby reducing food miles
* Walking or riding the bike wherever possible as opposed to driving
* Ensure the car tyres are always inflated to the correct level as they use less fuel
* Use fuel with Ethanol
* Turn off the lights and use organic or beeswax candles a lot of the time
* Unplug appliances when they are not in use
* Use heating and cooling when absolutely necessary
* Wash in mostly cold water
* Use chemical-free dish washing, washing powder and cleaning products
* Recycle, recycle, recycle
* Buy products with the highest recyclability
* Purchase clothes that are ethically made, not mass produced
* Dress in Organic clothing
* Install water-saving nozzles on all taps including showers
* Compost scraps whenever possible
* Prepare food plans so as to avoid food wastage
* Grow herbs and spices
* Have timed showers to use less water
* Water the plants of an evening
* Bury food scraps in the garden bed to feed the earth worms or compost
* Collecting grey water from bath and use it to water plants
* Using Certified Organic personal care products (avoid using chemicals)
* Wash the car on the grass with environmentally friendly car wash
* Buy Certified Organic or Farmers markets produce. I understand that certified organics can be expensive, but local farmers markets for the most part are usually reasonable. On my blog (www.koraorganics.com/blog) I include a list of Farmers Markets from around the world so that people will have ready access to the same.
Together we can make a difference! For further details on how you can participate in Earth Hour plus take Earth Hour – “Beyond the Hour” refer to www.earthhour.org I look forward to hearing from you.
