Eco-friendly Mountain Hiking. When you are out for adventurous tour like mountain hiking, or juggle trekking, never pollute the nature. Instead, pick up trash along the way. You have been taking benefits from the natural resources and it’s your turn to pay back.

Mendaki Gunung secara Ramah Lingkungan. Ketika Anda berwisata alam seperti mendaki gunung atau napak tilas di hutan, jangan pernah mencemari alam. Sebaliknya, sempatkan memungut sampah di sepanjang jalan. Anda telah menikmati keindahan Alam dan kini waktunya berbalas budi.

Who are the Earth Hour partners?

Earth Hour began as a WWF-led initiative in Australia in 2007 in partnership with brand co-owners, Fairfax Media and Leo Burnett. All three partners decided from the beginning, however, that expanding Earth Hour’s global reach would require working in partnership with any organisation. Earth Hour’s message has spanned the world with the help of many global organisations. In 2012, Earth Hour’s collaboration with YouTube has been significant in the development of the I Will If You Will campaign.

Siapa saja mitra Earth Hour?

Earth Hour pertama kali muncul dari inisiatif WWF Australia di 2007 yang bermitra dengan Fairfax Media, dan Leo Burnett. Ketiga mitra ini sejak awal telah sepakat bahwa diperluasnya jangkauan Earth Hour secara global membutuhkan kemitraan dari organisasi apapun. Pesan Earth Hour telah membentang di dunia dengan bantuan banyak organisasi global. Pada 2012, kolaborasi Earth Hour dengan YouTube sangatlah penting dalam pengembangan kampanye “Ini Aksiku Mana Aksimu”.

Shut the Refrigerator. Don’t keep the refrigerator door open any longer than you need to and avoid the cold air from flowing out the door. According to Home Energy Magazine, door openings account for 7% of your fridge energy use while the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences at the University of Florida says that poor open/close habits (like leaving the fridge door open while you soak your bowl of Frosted Mini-Wheats with milk) waste 50 to 120Kwh a year.

Tutup Pintu Kulkas. Jangan biarkan pintu kulkas terbuka terlalu lama untuk menghindari terbuangnya udara dingin keluar kulkas. Menurut majalah Home Energy, bahwa 7% penggunaan energi kulkas terbuang ketika pintu dibuka. Sedangkan menurut fakultas Ilmu Makanan dan Pertanian Universitas Florida, kebiasaan menutup/membuka pintu kulkas (misalnya membiarkan pintu kulkas tetap terbuka sembari menuang susu ke semangkuk cereal) membuang energi 50 hingga 120kwh per tahun.

Green Cleaning for Windows and Mirrors. Instead of those harsh-smelling sprays, try this highly effective, simple solution for windows and mirrors. White Vinegar, Water and Newspaper: Mix 2 tablespoons of white vinegar with a gallon of water, and dispense into a used spray bottle. Squirt on, then scrub with newspaper, not paper towels, which cause streaking. If you’re out of vinegar or don’t like its smell, you can substitute undiluted lemon juice or club soda.

Cara Ramah Lingkungan Membersihkan Kaca Jendela dan Cermin. Ketimbang bau kimia menyengat dari produk pembersih kaca yang tidak ramah lingkungan, cobalah solusi efektif berikut ini. Air dan koran bekas. Campur 2 sendok makan cuka putih dengan satu galon air, kemudian masukkan ke dalam botol spray. Semprotkan pada permukaan kaca lalu gosok dengan koran bekas, bukan handuk kertas yang justru menyebabkan goresan. Jika Anda tidak punya cuka atau tidak suka baunya, Anda dapat menggantinya dengan jus lemon murni atau soda.

Whose idea was Earth Hour?
Earth Hour came from a think tank initiated by Earth Hour Executive Director and Co-Founder, Andy Ridley, resulting in the formation of a partnership between WWF Australia, Leo Burnett and Fairfax Media to address the climate change issue. In 2007, there was still a degree of scepticism and denial about the issue of climate change. Earth Hour came as the inspiration to rally people to the reality of climate change and start a dialogue about what we as individuals can do to help address the greatest problem facing our planet today. Leo Burnett partnered with WWF to promote the idea and help make the campaign a reality in Sydney, a campaign which has now gone beyond climate change to symbolise the growing global pursuit of a better, healthier world.

Ide Siapakah Earth Hour?
Earth Hour berasal dari pemikiran yang diprakarsai oleh Direktur Earth Hour dan Co-Founder, Andy Ridley, yang berlanjut dengan dibentuknya kemitraan antara WWF Australia, Leo Burnett dan Media Fairfax dalam mengatasi isu perubahan iklim. Pada tahun 2007, dunia masih skeptis dan menolak isu perubahan iklim. Earth Hour hadir sebagai inspirasi untuk mengumpulkan orang dengan realitas perubahan iklim dan mulai mempertanyakan tentang apa yang bisa kita lakukan sebagai individu untuk membantu mengatasi masalah terbesar yang dihadapi planet kita hari ini. Leo Burnett bermitra dengan WWF untuk mempromosikan ide dan membantu membuat kampanye menjadi kenyataan di Sydney, kampanye yang kini telah melampaui isu perubahan iklim, melambangkan gerakan global dalam menggapai kehidupan yang lebih baik, dunia yang lebih sehat.

Public Transport. Beside “bike to work” schedule at least once a week to reach your workplace by public transportation. It reduces air pollution, traffic jam, carbon, time, and “green” for your wallet.

Transportasi Umum. Selain gowes ke kantor, jadwalkan setidaknya seminggu sekali pergi ke tempat kerja dengan menggunakan transportasi umum. Hal ini mengurangi polusi udara, kemacetan lalu lintas, emisi gas, waktu dan tentunya “hijau” bagi dompet Anda.

Aren’t you using a lot of electricity and resources to promote this event?

Earth Hour takes every effort to minimise our footprint, not just for the hour but all year round. The campaign relies heavily on digital platforms to minimise the usage of natural resources, and we endeavour to keep our footprint to a minimum where possible. However, we do not claim nor do we think it is achievable at this time to create awareness and engagement of so many people on environmental issues with zero footprint.

Tidakkah Anda menggunakan banyak listrik dan energi untuk kampanye ini?

Earth Hour berupaya memperkecil biaya dan energi, bukan hanya untuk acara mematikan lampu satu jam itu sendiri, melainkan juga gaya hidup selama setahun penuh. Kampanye ini mengandalkan program digital untuk memperkecil penggunaan sumber daya alam. Earth Hour berusaha se-ekonomis mungkin. Tentunya upaya ini tidak serta merta mampu menciptakan kesadaran dan keterlibatan banyak orang akan isu lingkungan secara instant.

Park in the Shade. During hot months, try to park your vehicle in a shady spot, which decreases the amount of fuel lost to evaporation and requires less air-conditioning when you get back in.

Parkir di Tempat Teduh. Selama musim panas, parkirlah kendaraan di tempat yang teduh, sehingga mengurangi jumlah bahan bakar yang menguap sekaligus mengurangi energi untuk menjalankan AC.
