“Hundreds of millions of people, businesses and governments around the world unite each year to support the largest environmental event in history – Earth Hour. More than 5,200 cities and towns in 135 countries worldwide switched off their lights for Earth Hour 2011 alone, sending a powerful message for action on climate change. It also ushered in a new era with members going Beyond the Hour to commit to lasting action for the planet. Without a doubt, it’s shown how great things can be achieved when people come together for a common cause.”
Earth Hour 2012 takes place on Saturday the 31st March and Londolozi is proud to be a part of supporting this initiative which aims to raise awareness about the impact which climate change is having on our planet. In addition we also wish to draw attention to the pioneering initiatives which aim to solve the problems of fossil fuel energy consumption, food shortages and water crises. Although it is difficult for one individual or organisation to make a meaningful impact on the world, it is through the collective consciousness of many that positive change can be brought about.
Here at Londolozi we are doing our bit to work towards a more sustainable future by pioneering the first ever Zero Emissions Safari vehicle, growing our own vegetable gardens, installing Solar Powered Geysers and reducing plastic consumption by bottling our water onsite, to name but a few. We will add Earth Hour 2012 to our list of initiatives this year and hope that you will join us in doing so as well. To find out more about Earth Hour 2012, you can visit their website HERE.

This is a great initiative – I wish it would go 100% global. Apart from the energy saved, an hour reflecting on our ease of flicking a switch to ‘on’ and to a planet with finite resources, is vital.
