On Saturday, 25 March 2017, True Blue Bay Boutique Resort will take part in Earth Hour by turning of lights in its restaurant and bar and Front Desk from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm. It will use candles and flashlights while it continues to serve its guests during that hour. In-house guests are also asked to participate in this initiative by switching off the lights, the air conditioning, their computers and devices in their rooms.
Why switch off the lights? Grenada burns fossil fuels to generate electricity. The burning of fossil fuels is a major contributor to the green house gases which are trapped in the earth’s atmosphere. Trapped greenhouse gases in the atmosphere cause the rapid rise in the earth’s temperature to dangerous levels that threaten the earth’s existence as we know it. This is known as global warming.
True Blue Bay Boutique Resort encourages people to participate in this global event of turning of their lights and devices n their homes and communities to shine a light on climate change.
Earth Hour is a worldwide event initiated by the international organisation, World Wildlife Fund (WWF). For more information about Earth Hour visit: https://www.earthhour.org.
