Earth Hour 2011: It's time to go beyond the hour
1515/1555 Poydras & the Jones Lang LaSalle Management Team are working towards A Cleaner Tomorrow! We will be playing a vital role in Earth Hour 2011 and you can help us Go Beyond the Hour to have a Cleaner Tomorrow too!
Last year, for the first time, every single Jones Lang LaSalle office across the world has joined in the effort and participated in Earth Hour! What a great feat! We plan to show our support for our planet once again this weekend and we ask all of our wonderful Tenants, Vendors and Clients to take part in their very own Earth Hour! This is not just to save energy for an hour, but it’s a change of attitude and lifestyle. If we, along with billions of others around the world express our concern over our ecological crisis & climate change and be a bit more environmentally friendly, the planet will be a much better place during our lives and our children’s lives.
Earth Hour is on Saturday the 26th of March, 2011 from 8:30 – 9:30 p.m.
How do you participate?
At the office…
1st…before leaving your office this weekend, please turn off all unnecessary lights in the office.
2nd…turn off your computers, computer screens and printers.
3rd…turn off any unnecessary office equipment and unplug the transformers. Did you know that transformer plugs continue to drain power when left plugged in and not in use?
1st…do the same type of things identified above for your office at home.
2nd…go through each room of your home and see what you can turn off or unplug.
3rd…make it a party with candle lights, cookouts, crawfish boils and bon fires.
4th…encourage family, friends and others to take part in Earth Hour 2011.
If you choose to go beyond the Hour and take action for our planet, don’t forget to log on to www.earthhour.org and tell everyone about it!
Thank you to everyone who plans to take part—and to everyone who continues to support the environment to help ensure a sustainable future for our families, our firms and our planet.
With Earth Hour almost upon us, our thoughts are with the people of Japan during this incredibly challenging and sad time for their country.
