Earth Hour Sat March 31st 8.30pm

Hi all,

Some of you may not be aware but Earth Hour takes place this weekend on Saturday 31st March 2012 at 20:30 hrs. Earth Hour is an initiative which basically involves turning off all unnecessary lighting for an hour to highlight greener thinking. It’s an event that started off very small but is now a global fixture, getting bigger every year – we can play our part!

While the stadium has controls to turn off unnecessary lighting, I would like to ask staff to participate in Earth Hour by switching off lights in your home at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday 31st March. To track our achievements I would like to ask staff members who participate in Earth Hour to email sustainability@crokepark.ienext week after the event, letting us know how many lights you switched off in your homes for that hour. We will then be able to see how much we, as a group of people, have contributed to this initiative – we are helping the environment through one simple gesture for one hour on one day.

If anyone would like further information please visit the Earth Hour website

Thanking you in advance.
