There are a lot of campaigns today for saving our environment. These include planting trees, recycling, carbon footprint awareness, and many more. One of the events that focus on saving the environment is Earth Hour.
This worldwide movement was started in the year 2007 in Sydney, Australia by the WWF organization, also known as World Wildlife Fund and World Wide Fund for Nature.
During Earth Hour, businesses, establishments, and households turn off their light for an hour to promote awareness and energy conservation.
Anyone in the whole world can participate during this one-hour event. For 2019, the event will happen on March 30, at 8:30 P.M. to 9:30 P.M., local time. You can check more about this event here.
Despite this dark hour, you can still do activities that you and your canine buddy will enjoy. Read on to know some of these activities.
Since all the lights and electronics are off, why not use the time to take a nap and cuddle with your dog? This will also be a good idea if you had a long and tiring day. Give your eyes a break from your phone and from all the gadgets you’ve been using! Give your dog some belly rubs, cuddles, and take a nap together.
Moonlit Walk and Fetch Game
You can play the fetch game in your own backyard, just make sure that your backyard is clean and there isn’t any holes, things, or place that can get your four-legged best friend injured.
You can also walk your dog. Just make sure though that there is enough light in the streets to see the path you are walking. Or better yet, bring a flashlight with you, for safety and for an emergency.
And don’t worry, your dog can see better in the dark than humans.
Is there a book you’ve been wanting to finish but you can’t because you have no time? Read it during Earth Hours.
Find a cozy spot in your home, light some candles, let your dog be in your lap, open the book, and start your adventure to another world. You can also read the book out loud for your dog to enjoy too. However, make sure that there is enough light coming from the candles or an emergency light while reading so that your poor eyes will not be stressed.
Earth hour can give you the quiet time you’ve been wanting especially if you are stressed the days before. You can do your usual yoga, hum in a corner and find your inner peace.
Or you can light some candles, scented or not scented, sit with your dog and give it pets and belly rubs, and enjoy the silence.
