Earth Hour 2010 : Countdown Begins !
Climate change is happening all around us and its pace is accelerating.
From melting glaciers to increasingly intense weather patterns, climate change is already impacting life on Earth.
On Saturday, March 27, 2010, at 8:30 p.m. local time, OneSpiffy and our employees will be taking part in what promises to be an amazing and inspiring event in the fight against climate change: Earth Hour. Sponsored by World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Earth Hour asks individuals, businesses, government leaders and others to turn out all non-essential lighting for one hour as a bold statement of collective concern about climate change.
Earth Hour is the largest event of its kind in the world. In 2009, nearly one billion people from 4,100 cities in 87 countries turned out their lights, as well as international landmarks including the Golden Gate Bridge, Empire State Building, Eiffel Tower and Great Pyramids, and the city skylines of Las Vegas, Hong Kong and Singapore.
We’d like to encourage you, to join us in this important and inspiring effort.
Participation is free and easy:
- Sign up at EarthHour.org
Show your support, find out what Earth Hour events are happening near you and get tips on organizing fun events in your community.
- Spread the Word
Invite your friends and family to join the movement, become a fan on Facebook and post a link to EarthHour.org on your profile page.
- Turn off the Lights
Turn off your non-essential lighting at 8:30 p.m. local time on Saturday, March 27.

Our company has long believed in operating our business responsibly. In the weeks leading up to Earth Hour, we will take an even closer look at actions we can take throughout the organization to operate more efficiently, waste less and reduce our environmental footprint—not only in our own business, but throughout our supply chain.
Please join us as we turn out and take action!
Don’t forget-March 27th at 8:30 pm, lights off.
