How we celebrate earth hour

28 March 2016

When we create new products, we always aim to respect the Earth and our natural resources. And we hope this intention is one you’ll carry home with you. Earth Hour is a chance for the world to unite with this common focus, so let’s make it an event to be enjoyed by the entire family!

1. WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT ALL ACROSS THE CITY, it’s the perfect time to make your way out to the backyard or balcony to count some stars and spot constellations. Bring your blankets and pillows, some snacks, and enjoy the simple  act of just looking up.

2. TURN OUT THE LIGHTS, BRING ON THE CANDLES, and gather your friends for an intimate, low-key dinner. Honestly, you don’t even need to cook. Since we’re all about energy conservation during Earth Hour, forget about the stove and other kitchen appliances. Opt for cheese, bread, olives and charcuterie to make life easy.

3. GET COSY, KIDS. Why not use this time to share what Earth Hour means for your family? With the help of a super cool tent (which we definitely recommend having up all year round), cushions, and hand- and battery-powered lights, you can create a campsite feeling at home.
