Like every March 26, Earth Hour is a symbolic gesture developed by WWF that consists of drawing attention to the problems of climate change . This movement was born in Sindey in 2007 and consists of turning off the lights in buildings and monuments for one hour . We are going to join this movement both in our factory and at home with a few little tricks that we give you below, and you join Earth Hour?
What is Earth Hour?
This action, much more than turning off the lights for an hour, is a symbol to remember that nature is our vital pillar for the planet and that we need everything it gives us. The air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and if all of this is given to us by nature, defending it is our main task.
Although its first edition was in 2007, it did not arrive in our country until 2009 and since then, Earth Hour is one of the largest movements in the world. It is the speaker of millions of people, institutions and companies.
What can we do to save the planet
In addition to turning off the light for an hour, we can also make small changes to our routine. Take note:
Your wardrobe is key to saving the planet
Have you stopped to think about the clothes we have and how much you wear? This happens to us a lot. We buy clothes and then, for different reasons, we don't wear them. Because we don't like it, it's too big or too small, we've grown tired of it... As you know, in every closet there's always something we don't use. For these cases we recommend:
- Use second-hand clothing sales apps like Vinted or Percentil
- Donate it to NGOs such as Humana or Cáritas .
- Pass it on to the next generations. Millennials will know much more than we talk about, who hasn't inherited clothes from a cousin?
- Exchange it with friends. Some beers, clothes and friends, a VIP market!
How we wash clothes , how to read the labels or what is behind each garment , everything influences the planet. And if you think about it, everything is a wheel: if you consume sustainable and local fashion, you prevent your clothes from being moved thousands of kilometers; If you read the labels , composition and washing instructions, you extend the life of your garments and thus avoid constantly renewing the wardrobe.
How to take care of the environment from home
We propose simple tips that we carry out in our routine:
- - Don't forget to separate to recycle and take it as a habit.
- - Reusable and bulk products .
- - Buy in local establishments . Grab your shopping cart and enjoy the market.
In our blog you will find a post that will help you lead a more sustainable life .
Remember, on March 26 at 8:30 p.m. at 9:30 p.m., we invite you to turn off the light , we count on you!
