Earth Hour Phuket Launches ‘Lights Out Phuket’ an initiative to help SAVE THE EARTH.
On March 26th 2011 an anticipated total of more than 1 billion people from 223 countries around the world will switch off all non-essential lights and electronic appliances between 8.30 and 9.30pm local time in support of the fifth annual Earth Hour.
What started as a project between the WWF and The Sydney Morning Herald in 2007 has become a global tradition and the 2011 hour expected to be bigger than ever before as part of an ongoing campaign to raise awareness about climate change.
As a central figure in the Phuket community, 91.5FM – Phuket Island Radio is actively supporting Earth Hour and volunteering to raise awareness of the movement so that everyone in Phuket – Thais, expats and holidaymakers – can join the fight to make a difference by switching off their lights.
More information about Earth Hour Phuket – written in both English and Thai – can be found at the website www.earthhourphuket.com and volunteers can also register their support for ‘Lights Out Phuket’ on the Earth Hour Phuket page on Facebook.
Climate change is of growing concern to everyone, something highlighted by the difficulties facing many around the world right now.
91.5FM hopes that everyone in Phuket on March 26th will join the station in switching their lights off for 60 minutes and contributing to the efforts to reduce our carbon footprint.
Earth Hour Phuket is a voluntary initiative of 91.5 FM and 102.5 FM – Phuket Island Radio
