International Earth Hour March 25th 2017

Thurles Eco Spirituality Group reports:

Eco-spirituality is based on a simple fundamental belief in the sacredness of Nature, Mother Earth and our Universe.  Promoters and exponents of such spirituality come from an assortment of beliefs and religious faiths including: Christianity; Judaism; Buddhism, Islam and many other indigenous traditions.

While many of the above named religious group’s and their beliefs may differ considerably, one central theme remains that there is a spiritual dimension to the present ecological crisis being currently experienced.

International Earth Hour is an annual campaign that brings attention to the effects of climate change by asking people to switch off non-essential lights for one hour on this evening, Saturday 25th March, between 8.30pm and 9.30pm. (In roughly one hour’s time.).

This campaign was begun in Sydney, Australia in 2007, making today its 10th Anniversary.

Simple actions to assist in bringing about climate justice:
  • Turn off lights when you leave an empty room.
  • Switch off and unplug TV’s, Chargers, Laptops, etc. when not in use.
  • Do not leave the tap running while preparing food or brushing your teeth.
  • Buy locally produced food and plan your shopping to avoid wastage.
  • Plant trees and shrubs.
  • Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
  • Encourage family and friends to do all of the above.
