Switch off for Earth Hour and do these family activities

Over the past few weeks load-shedding has plunged many households into darkness but tonight families can switch off their lights for a good cause.

Take part in the Earth Hour initiative by keeping the lights and electrical appliances in your house switched off for only an hour – and help raise awareness about climate change.

More than 7 000 cities and towns worldwide take part in this initiative. The hour without computers and TVs provide you with an ideal opportunity to spend quality time with your family.

-       Light candles and bring out board games and a pack of cards. Old favourites such as Scrabble and Monopoly or card games are a fun way to pass the time with your family.

-       Read a book. Take a break from watching TV and read a book by candlelight.

-       Get the entire family to chat about what’s been happening in their life over the past week and what their plans for the future are.

-       Have a braai with family and friends

Earth Hour is tonight from 20:30 to 21:30. Switch of the lights and electrical appliances in your house to show your support for the move against climate change.

Find Love!
