Planet Earth goes dark for one hour, because everyone turns off all their lights!

  • Did you know that:
  • We use 35% of our water in the bathroom, most of it is hot water.
  • We use more water for the shower than for a bath.
  • A bath holds about 80-100 litres of water. But a modern power shower can use 20 litres of water a minute, meaning more than five minutes in the shower could use more than 100 litres.

The Eco Showerdropis the worlds first low-cost, universal shower meter. A simple digital display tells you exactly how much water your shower has dispensed through user-friendly graphics. A simple alert tells when the recommended amount of water has been dispensed.

The savings can be substantial in both water and energy. For a family of four that could be over $1200 a year saved on water and energy bills, as well as over 40,000 litres of water and substantial savings in carbon emissions.

Earth Hour 2009


Around the world,

over 4,000 towns and

cities in 88 countries,

across 25 time zones,

involving hundreds of

millions of people

turned of their lights

on 28 March in what

has been billed “a vote

for the earth”. These

votes were presented

to the world leaders at

the Global Climate

Change Conference in

Copenhagen in

December 2009 to

make sure that the

global voice is heard.

Hong Kong:

About 2.9 million people in Hong Kong participated in Earth Hour 2009, joining the 1 billion voices from all around the world in this call for action on climate change. At 8:30pm on 28 March 2009, the Victoria Harbor went dark. Over 1,800 buildings, 600 companies and organisations, all 18 district councils, 160 schools and all universities switched off their lights for a brighter future.

Did you know that:

  • Earth hour is not only about lights off in one hour.
  • 99% of the participants said they would also take action in their daily lives to save energy and reduce carbon footprint in the future.
  • Earth Hour witnessed the lights went out on some of the most recognized landmarks on our planet, including Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, the Bird's Nest and the Water Cube in Beijing, Eiffel Tower in Paris and Big Ben in London, and the world’s tallest constructed building Taipei 101.

Supporting Earth Hour by turning off all the light for one hour, you will

not only show action against climate change, but also take one further

step of practicing low carbon lifestyle in your daily life. Every step can

make a difference to the Earth.

You can support WWF’s Earth Hour 2010 by:

  • Saying NO to appliances’ standby
  • Reducing shower time
  • Using less disposable dining utensils
  • Eating less meat
  • Turning off lights in your home at 08:30, 27 March 2010

As long as there is Earth, there will be Earth Hour! It’s held each year on

the the last Saturday of March.
