Dine And Dance For Earth Hour

Whether dancing in the dark or having a nice dinner by solar-powered light, choose to reduce your energy consumption during Earth Hour on March 26. To mark the occasion, WWF Malaysia will be organizing a huge dance event called "Dance In The Dark" at Sunway Pyramid in Petaling Jaya. Participants will take part in the 'flashmob' and dance to the Paul Simon song The Lion Sleeps Tonight at the Oasis Boulevard from 8.30 pm to 9.30 pm.

WWF Malaysia communications unit manager Suan Tan said it had initiated the "Live Green: One Switch At A Time" pledge, which aims to promote sustainable living beyond just Earth Hour. "Those who purchase an Earth Hour T-shirt and sign our pledge will get a free glow-in-the-dark armband," she said, adding that all proceeds will go to WWF Malaysia's conservation work.

Meanwhile, those without dinner plans should head over to Ikea for some Swedish meatballs whilst dining by the light of its Sunnan solar-powered table lamp. All proceeds collected during Earth Hour will also be donated to WWF Malaysia's conservation and outreach efforts. The Ikea building facade and external lights will be turned off from 8.30 pm to 9.30 pm. (Sourced from The Star)
