I just don't know with others, but ever since if we always turn off the lights when not in used. We usually stayed in one place(e.g. living room) or room to save electricity consumption. I see to it we have a schedule for ironing clothes and doing the laundry to save electricity, water and time. I usually bring cloth bags when buying some things in the market... I also recycle some things that still can be used... Its every persons responsibility to take care of our environment.

Hi dheng30. Welcome to myLot! I do agree with your statement here. We turn off all the lights that we are not using at our home. I don't believe in keeping lights or any other electricity on if I am not using it. Many people are using electricity and they don't need it. I try to think smartly when it comes to using electricity.

hi, yes I agree that there are other more ways that we can do to save our planet as you already mentioned, turning of lights together however is one of the easiest, simplest and most visible way if we want to leave an impact on our solidarity, yeah I think it's effective and it's a good reminder to all of us not to waste resources, not just during Earth hour but on how we go about doing our business day to day, yes I will be one of those who would support the Global activity

It's good that stuff like Earth Hours are planned. The earth is the best place to be, no other planet is as a good as this. Why would we destroy it then? Always turn off lights, it saves you so much money and at the same time it makes the planet happy! So please, people of the world, save that energy, save your earth, save your pocket and of course, in the end, your life. (think of energy sources going dry)
