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 ?

I just heard from the Molson Moncton brewery — they will be shutting down all the lights in the office, brewery, packaging plant and parking lots, as well as the signs — for the WHOLE night! Great news!

After a great Earth Hour planning meeting this morning, I was itching to get back to my computer to shareMolson’s updated plans.
I’m happy to report that all of Molson’s breweries (Toronto, Montreal, St. John’s, Vancouver and Moncton) will be participating in Earth Hour — one way or another. From internal and external building lights, to parking lot lights, and to the Molson signs — each brewery will be participating wherever it is safe to do so. In addition, the breweries and majority of the offices across Canada will shut off lights, computers, fax machines, photocopiers, etc.
In Toronto, the brewery and offices will be putting together an Earth Hour ‘task force’ – a group of volunteers (Molson employees) who will go around on Friday afternoon (March 28) with a checklist, making sure every desk, work station, office and meeting room is Earth Hour Certified!
More details to come…..two weeks to go!

When something as obviously great and inspiring as EARTH HOUR comes along,you just don’t need to think about it too long, or have a series of meetings and discussions about it. Earth Hour is a wonderful effort that started in Sydney Australia last year and is gaining momentum around the globe. Molson is Proud to Play our Part by taking a look across our brewery network in Canada in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Moncton and St. John’s. Our brewery managers are assessing what actions we can take on March 29th to raise awareness and make a difference in reducing energy use. Molson will also be encouraging our employees from coast to coast to consider what they can do personally on the evening of March 29th to raise awarnress in their communities and make a difference in having an effect on climate change. Jump on board !
