Earth Hour.......

Just a quick hello and a few words about a great event! On March 27Th from 8:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. join in for Earth Hour. Check out what Connecticut is doing to get involved.

To get involved, register to join Earth Hour and download the Blueprint for Individuals.

Meanwhile, here are a few simple steps you can take to help reduce your impact on the environment:

•Replace incandescent light bulbs with fluorescent ones.
•Recycle paper and plastic, instead of using the trash.
•Read news online, instead of buying paper copies.
•Grow vegetables during the summer.
•Bicycle or walk to work or to run errands instead of driving.
•Take the bus or train, instead of driving long distances.
•Unplug appliances when they are not in use.
•Lower the thermostat to cut back on heating during the winter.
•Insulate and eliminate drafts to get the most out of your heating and cooling.
•Plant a tree to help filter your air and to provide shade.

My family will be playing some board games by candle-light by the fireplace that night! Join and to make a difference and have some fun!
