Earth Hour ‘filip’ for eastern suburbs Councils

Earth Hour ‘filip’ for eastern suburbs Councils

Randwick, Waverley and Woollahra Councils are banding together to support the 10-year celebration of Earth Hour this year.

Originating in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour has of course mushroomed into an international reminder of actions we can all take to protect our Planet and its resources into the future.

From the Eiffel Tower, the pyramids, to the Sydney Opera House, Earth Hour’s global movement now calls for year-round action although it remains symbolised around the one-hour between 8.30 and 9.30 pm on March 25.

With almost a decade of their own regional environmental actions, Randwick, Waverley and Woollahra Councils are backing this year’s Earth Hour celebration with an invitation to residents to ‘dine by candlelight’ on the night. With almost 80 local cafes and restaurants to choose from, the eastern suburbs ‘Dine by Candlelight’ is aimed at supporting local businesses that help spread the Earth Hour message.

For families who may not be able to dine out on the evening, the Councils are also supporting the Earth Hour Twilight Picnic and Markets at the Randwick Community Centre from 5 to 9pm. With music and activities for young and old, the Earth Hour Festival will even have a choice of food stalls and ‘I made it local’ market stalls for busy families who might not have time to get their picnic food organised.

This year’s Earth Hour Festival is even giving everyone a chance to find out about solar renewables and battery storage suited to where you live. Solar experts and installers will give householders the chance to have a solar ‘speed date’ where they can sit down face-to-face and get some expert advice and information on solar renewables and how to use the solar energy at night.

So don’t miss out on our 3 Council Earth Hour Festival – there’s something for everyone and a great chance to join in and celebrate ten years of Earth Hour around the globe.
