What is one hour of light worth to you?
Earth Hour was inspired by a demonstration in Sydney, Australia on March 31, 2007, when more than 2.2 million Sydney residents and more than 2,100 businesses switched off lights and non-essential electrical appliances for one hour to make a powerful statement about the leading contributor to global warming: coal-fired electricity.
That single hour accounted for a 10.2 percent reduction in energy consumption across the city. Global icons such as the Sydney Opera House went dark, weddings were held by candlelight, and the world took notice. – What is Earth Hour?
When Dana Yotov started her small project of capturing portraits of those in support of Earth Hour, she did not know how much of an impact it would have in SecondLife (SL). Instead of an expected handful of requests from friends to join in on the pledge, she soon had dozens upon dozens of requests from all over the SL community.
One of those, was Boniefacio. He has volunteered his services in support the cause to help reduce emissions and save our Earth. The Amazing Impressions Modeling (AIM) will be hosting an Earth Hour 2013 Fashion Show on Saturday, March 30th at 4pm SLT.
