The WWF and AER volunteers went to Herastrau Park on Saturday to give out information about Earth Hour, climate change and the way in which each individual can help prevent it by adopting an environmentally-friendly lifestyle and making small gestures which can count very much in the long term.
“Turning off the lights at the office or when leaving the room, not leaving electronic devices on stand-by, using more efficient light bulbs, using public transportation as much as possible and reducing unnecessary water consumption are simple things which do not affect either our comfort or standard of living but have a positive impact on the environment. This is the Earth Hour message,” said Dana Caratas, communication coordinator of the WWF Danube-Carpathians-Romania Program.
Earth Hour was first organized by WWF Australia in Sydney. With the help of the authorities who also promoted this action, on March 29 over 2 million inhabitants and 2,100 companies in the Australian capital turned off the lights for an hour. The result was that energy consumption in Sydney was reduced by 10.2 percent during Earth Hour. The impact also prompted officials in other cities such as Atlanta, San Francisco, Bangkok, Ottawa, Dublin, Copenhagen, Chicago, Tel Aviv and Toronto to support this initiative and it became a worldwide event.
