Across 154 countries people around the globe will be taking part in 'Earth Hour' - an event which lasts 60 minutes designed to raise awareness and inspire action that goes beyond the hour to save our planet.
Last year, in August, most of us were celebrating summer, birthdays, school holidays, however the 20th of that month was also 'World Overshoot Day' marking the date when we all exhausted nature’s budget for the year; carbon dioxide, trees, fish, oil. Humanity uses 1.5 planets of resources per year. We only have the one.
This is actually pretty overwhelming - and it's hard to think about how you, as one person, can make a difference, or even believe you can.
The good news is, it is possible to make a positive difference as one person. This week, we'll be putting out bitesize information every day about this environmentally friendly call to action. 'Waste not' is one of our company ethics, and it's something our community has shown time and time again that their passionate about. So use this as a chance to inspire topics in General Discussion, environmentally friendly mobile guides in Tips, feedback in Contribute or Ideas to improve giffgaff - improvements which will go beyond the hour and make a lasting effect. We're run by you.
