Happy Earth Hour day!
We won't be wandering downtown this year to see the lights go off like we did last year.
Instead we are going to eat a veggie meal via beeswax candlelight*, then we are going to go around the house unplugging everything (it doesn't just have to be about the lights!), then at 8:30 we're going to walk around our neighbourhood for the hour. Luckily we are at 14 degrees here in Ottawa today so it should be a lovely walk. :)
What's everyone else planning to do?
*if you are going to burn candles, I'd strongly recommend beeswax. Regular candles are made from crude oil, throw off a lot of CO2 when burning (which kind of negates turning off the lights), and they are just generally unhealthy to be around.
