Food for Thought This Earth Hour

Whip out the candles and get ready to turn out the lights, 'cause this Saturday is Earth Hour. At 8:30pm, people across Australia (and around the world) will flick off their switches to shed light on climate change.

There's really no denying our planet is sick: climate change, species extinction, water shortages, pollution... the list just goes on and on sad.gif

The theme for this year's Earth Hour is 'Beyond the Hour'. So, 'beyond the hour' what can you do to help heal our planet? Well personally, I'd prescribe that people take action for the planet 3 times a day: breakfast, lunch and dinner! I'll let New York Times food writer Mark Bittman explain:

"We have to take matters into our own hands. Not only by advocating for a better diet for everyone, but by improving our own. And that happens to be quite easy: less meat, less junk, more plants. It's a simple formula." thumb.gif

Einstein also put it well: "Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet." Which also reminds me of this video...

So this Saturday, I'll be having a delicious candle-lit vegan dinner to celebrate Earth Hour. What about you? What will you be doing for Earth Hour?
