Are You Ready For Earth Hour?

Earlier this week we celebrated National Puppy Day in hopes of bringing awareness about the thousands of puppies in shelters needing a home.

Today we were checking out the Raise A Green Dog blog and found their article We Are Ready For Earth Hour.  So what is Earth Hour?  Its’ a time (1 hour to be exact) when homes and businesses come together to make their stand against climate change by doing something simple like turning their lights off for one hour.

Are You A Green Dog?

Linus, Stetson, and I have been focusing our effort on becoming green dogs (and people).  So at 8:30pm tonight (March 27th, 2010) we’re going to make sure we turn off all the lights in the house for an hour.

Unfortunately, we didn’t have much time to prepare for this years Earth Hour.  However, Gracie over at  Raise A Green Dog learned a cool new trick to kick off Earth Hour.

Take a look at the second video in the post We Are Ready For Earth Hour…and actually I embedded the video in this page for everyone to see:

Yep, that’s Gracie from Raise A Green Dog learning how to turn off the lights to kick off Earth Hour.  Pretty cool trick Gracie!

How about you?  Are you going to participate in Earth Hour?

  1. We love Earth Hour and think that it’s a wonderful way to raise awareness about being green 😀 Ooooo and i’m lovin the trick Gracie did! <3 Have a good day guys!

    1. Yeah, we love Johann and Gracie. We’ve been following their blogs for years. They’ve helped us with our goal to be greener dogs.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. @Omar, we ended up having to leave the house during Earth Hour. We normally leave at least one light on and the radio on, but during Earth Hour we made sure to shut everything down for the night.

    Next year we’ll be sure to have a better plan. I’d like to teach Stetson or Linus to turn out the lights like Gracie does in the video in this post.

  3. Hey Colby,

    I am glad you did Earth Hour. I think every little we can do helps. We also participated in Earth Hour on Saturday. We turned of the lights, used our candles, and played some board games. Was a really fun family time. We even extended it beyond the hour :).

    I was surprised that none of our neighbors participated however.
