To say that only developed nation has the power, technology, budget to spend, and the responsibility of caring for our planet is a misnomer. Every person, community, business — whether from a developed nation or a country like ours, carry the big task of protecting the planet for the future generations.

Showing up and participating in the biggest hour for Earth means taking a stand for the planet. It means joining the millions globally in raising awareness on environmental issues, a recognition of potential risks from climate change, carbon emissions, nature loss, energy depletion – all vital issues that have plagued our planet in recent years.

Camella, the Philippines’ largest homebuilder, has always been committed to making a difference in the environment and the planet we live in. The company recognizes the need to take action to help mitigate the impact of climate change, which is the primary culprit of global warming. This is why Camella has been supporting the annual Earth Hour event for many years, involving its communities nationwide. And the hours count not just for mere participation, but instead, commitment.

This year, Camella will once again take its commitment to the next level by dedicating an entire day to Earth Hour 2023 activities in every Camella property across the islands.

What is Earth hour?

Earth Hour is a global movement that was set up by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Usually held annually on the last Saturday of March, the event encourages individuals, communities and business owners to switch off non-essential electric lights, from 8:30 PM to 9:30 PM, as a symbolic gesture of commitment to the planet.

The first ever Earth Hour activity was held in Sydney, Australia in 2007.

What will happen during Earth hour 2023?

Happening this Saturday, March 25, Earth Hour 2023 will be a symbolic event where people switch off their lights for one hour at 8:30 PM local time. The goal is to raise awareness about climate change and encourage individuals and organizations to take action to reduce their carbon footprint.

How do I participate in Earth Hour 2023?

For Camella, the Earth Hour event is not about turning off the lights for just an hour. It is a day-long event that promotes environmental awareness and encourages community participation. Camella believes that by involving the community in Earth Hour activities, they can make a bigger impact in promoting sustainability and reducing carbon emissions or greenhouse gas emissions that drive global climate change . In essence, it is an hour reminding people about how everyone should do their part in caring for the planet we all habitate. It is the biggest hour for Earth.

Plant a Tree

One of the main activities that Camella communities will engage in is tree planting. Trees play a vital role in mitigating the effects of climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. They also provide shade and improve air quality, making them an essential element in creating a sustainable environment. By planting trees in their communities, Camella hopes to create positive impact, promote biodiversity and contribute to the fight against climate change and global warming.

Community Clean-up Drive

Another activity that Camella communities will engage in is a community clean-up drive. Proper waste management is crucial in reducing carbon emissions, greenhouse gas emissions and promoting sustainability. By cleaning up their communities, Camella hopes to raise awareness about the importance of proper waste management and encourage residents to adopt sustainable practices.

Turn Off the Lights

Finally, at 8:30 PM, Camella communities will switch off their lights for an hour to participate in The Biggest Hour for Earth. This activity is the culmination of the day-long Earth Hour event and is a symbolic gesture to show support for the fight against climate change. By participating in this event, Camella brings to its homeowners’ attention the relevant environmental issues, the potential risks of nature loss — in the hope of inspiring individuals and even businesses, to take small steps towards a more sustainable lifestyle — for a better future.

The call for sustainability, such as turning off lights when not in use, using energy-efficient bulbs, and reducing their overall energy consumption, has been resounding for many decades now. More than ways to save energy, it is a movement to practice and maintain a sustainable lifestyle.

Why should Camella residents participate in Earth Hour 2023?
