Earth Hour 2013

Development & Education

Earth Hour

Earth Hour is a global annual event and is a movement (organized by World Wildlife Fund) to raise awareness of Earth’s climate change.  It encourages everyone (household and businesses) worldwide to save energy and care for Mother Earth by “switching off” for an hour.

Earth Hour is scheduled for the last Saturday of every March and this year’s Earth Hour 2013 is on 23rd March, Saturday at 8:30pm.  I am planning to take this hour to spend some quality BubbaMama time, tech detox to a relaxed ambience.   Maybe give Bubba a baby massage-which he totally enjoys.

Things I need to prepare:

  1. Clean Towel- for Bubba to lie on
  2. Organic Massage Oil
  3. Scented Candles (I’ve shortlisted 2 options for a blend of scents)

Natural Candle Orange Cedarwood Clove web

I totally love the APIVITA Natural Candle.  It is made from 100% candles wax (soy and rapeseed) has a burning time of over 50 hours.  The Orange, Cedarwood & Clove pure essential oil blend soothes the senses and uplift the spirit- perfect for the Earth Hour relaxation. Retail price: $100 per 235g and $64 per 80g.

Hot Tip

Do you know that the molten wax in soy candles can also be used as hand moisturizer and lip balm?  *Erhm* I am not sadistic or trying to drip hot wax on you but the warm soy oil (molten soy wax) is also used as warm oil for body massages.

I urge everyone to participate and enjoy the Earth Hour like I do 🙂
