Earth Hour: Turn Off the Lights, Turn Up the Green

Posted by Sarah Berkey on

Our planet is facing constant challenges with climate change and non-sustainable practices. That’s why Not Labeled is spending this Earth Hour focusing on sustainability and connecting to the planet. Here’s everything you need to know about Earth Hour and some ideas on how to spend it sustainably.

What to Know About a Sustainable Earth Hour

People around the world are dedicated to leaving a positive impact on the planet, which is why Earth Hour is so important. This annual event encourages everyone to practice sustainable living against climate change and harmful practices.

Earth Hour was created to raise awareness about climate change and promote sustainable practices. Participants are also reminded that even the smallest contributions can greatly impact our planet.

Every Small Action Counts

Earth Hour is about more than how much you do. It’s about being part of a whole, which means even the tiniest contributions are appreciated and recognized.

One of the most well-known ways to participate in Earth Hour is by turning off lights. This helps to reduce your carbon footprint and demonstrate your commitment to energy conservation.

Some participants also unplug electronic devices and appliances to further demonstrate their commitment to the cause. This is also a time for participants to reflect on their daily energy usage and explore sustainable ways to live harmoniously with the planet.

Remember, Earth Hour is about more than what you’re doing. It’s about your commitment to the planet’s well-being and your efforts to encourage sustainable living. Even the simplest of actions can leave a lasting impact.

More Ways to Celebrate Earth Hour Sustainably

Turning off lights isn’t the only way to show your commitment to the planet. Here are some other ways to spend this Earth Hour sustainably.

1. Stargaze

With everything turned off, there’s no better time to reconnect with the planet than to gaze up at the stars. Enjoy a comfortable view outside or through a window, and immerse yourself in the night sky’s beauty.

2. Rest

An hour may seem like a short time, but it’s the perfect time to slow down and rest. Whether it’s a break from work or taking a moment away from personal matters, use this hour to recenter yourself as you appreciate the planet.

3. Exercise

Looking to reflect on your connection to the planet but want to stay moving? Whether it’s outdoor yoga or a run in the park, Earth Hour is the perfect time to move your body and enjoy the environment surrounding you.

While you may be part of a larger movement, remember that how you spend Earth Hour is personal to you. Explore, reflect, and reconnect in ways that feel meaningful and long-lasting.
