Quick Inspiration: Earth Hour 2009

Earth Hour 2009On March 28th, millions of people all over the world will be turning out their lights to raise awareness about climate change.

Earth Hour was started in Sydney Australia, and after just one year the number of participants went from 2 million to over 50 million. This year the numbers are even greater.

When it comes to raising topics about the environment, there are so many ways to get people talking about the issues. Beading is one of them!

If you’re an eco-friendly beader, why not make something for the Earth this month? You could use green, blue and white beads to represent the globe, buy some tagua nut beads for a sustainable project, or plant some flowers for the bees and then recreate them with beads.

And don’t forget to turn out your bead lamp for Earth Hour!

When it comes to climate change, simple actions can make huge differences and Commit21 leverages social media to influence networks of friends, family, and co-workers. Check it out at

  2. Thanks for sharing this tip! The more people involved in Earth Hour, the better!

  3. Huh, didn't know about this, but it's right around the corner! Maybe I'll make a mention of it on my blog too... everything we can do to save energy helps, right?
