EARTH HOUR SINGAPORE STYLE

. . . .And despite business on a Saturday night usually being brisk, many hotels, including Four Seasons, Parkroyal on Beach Road and Hotel Rendezvous will offer candlelight meals and special refreshments to mark the occasion in their food and beverage outlets.

Even Changi Airport will mark the occasion by having decorative and non-operational lighting switched off in the three main terminals for one hour.

Amidst the soaring corporate and individual pledges to Earth Hour, a group of 1,200 student volunteers is also taking the message to the heartlands.

The students, from schools such as Damai Secondary and Singapore Polytechnic and aged 15 to 25 years old, will knock on the doors of 30,000 households to raise awareness about environmental issues and encourage residents' participation in the global 'switch off'.

Their efforts are estimated to reach out to over 105,000 residents in areas such as Bukit Panjang, Bedok and Eunos.
