I’m ashamed to say I’ve never taken part in Earth hour before. I’ve heard about it of course and I see that people on various social networking sites wax lyrical about turning everything off for an hour to help save the planet but I’ve never done it.
I assume that’s true for most people. There is something quite nice about switching the tv off of an evening and doing other activities like going for a long walk or reading a book. But its those other things that take up electricity like computers, fridges, freezers, hair dryers, straigtheners etc that need attention also.
