In the Dark during Earth Hour

Molson Toronto Brewery 

Well, Earth Hour is over, and what a success it was!  I spent my Earth Hour at Molson, watching the brewery and offices go dark.  Above is a picture of the brewery, just after 8:00 p.m.  It was still a little bit light outside, so I took another couple shots closer to 9:00 p.m. (below), when it was really dark!

The offices were just as dark as the brewery, so I decided to wander around with my little video camera and take some clips.

Thanks to everyone for making Earth Hour such a success at Molson.  It was wonderful having so much enthusiasm for climate change awareness — let’s keep it going! 

 

Molson’s Earth Hour task force in action.  The team went around on Friday afternoon to make sure each office, room, desk, etc. was Earth Hour Certified.

Earth Hour is just about here, and Molson is ready to go!  Nation-wide, our breweries and offices are shutting down their lights on Saturday from 8-9 p.m.

Here in Toronto, we’re planning some great things to get everyone involved and aware of how Molson is participating in Earth Hour.   On Friday, our cafeteria will be serving a Earth Hour Lunch! Only cold, raw food….and lights off (where safe, of course).  No power will be used to cook the lunch.

We have also created an Earth Hour ‘task force’ — a group of Molson volunteers will be going around the offices on Friday afternoon, making sure each office, desk, room, etc. is Earth Hour Certified.

What will you Earth Hour certify on Saturday?

Wait………make that 3 days, 2 hours, 39 minutes…..

6 days, 2 hours, 41 minutes to EARTH HOUR

It was really neat arriving home from March break and opening up an email from a neighbour inviting the family down the street for a neighbourhood celebration of Earth Hour next Saturday. My neighbour writes for the Toronto Star and I think it is great that employees at participating companies in Earth Hour are banding together to raise awareness on this important date. And as reported in The Toronto Star, Canada is leading the way.

Our family will be shutting down the power at our home and wandering down the street to join neighbours for a fondu dinner with an eventual trek over to the Leaside Bridge over the Don Valley to witness what we hope will be a visible change in the downtown Toronto skyline…lights off folks !

Our Molson breweries across the country will be focussed on energy savings initiatives.

What are you doing to raise awareness and participate in Earth Hour between 8 and 9pm on March 29th ?
