Viva’s blue buses are some of the greenest in the world. We weren’t in the office during the official Earth Hour, but we still wanted to do our part. For one hour on Friday, March 27, we turned off our lights and had a litter-less lunch. Staff members also received energy efficient light bulbs to take home.
Across Ontario the demand for power dropped over 6% and demand was down over 15% in Toronto alone. Around the world, over 4,000 cities from 80 countries turned off the lights. Organizers believe that about a billion people participated.
But vivaNext knows that turning off lights for an hour is only part of a solution. That is why we work year-round on transit solutions that will decrease the carbon in our atmosphere.
What did you do during Earth Hour to help our environment?
