Recognizing the need to take action against climate change and global warming, Camella, the country’s largest homebuilder, took part in a million efforts for the planet during Earth Hour 2023 last March 25. As a community steadfast in its commitment to making positive environmental changes and restoring biodiversity, Camella brings new light to the Earth Hour undertaking by going beyond an hour of lights off.
Camella Communities Nationwide Support Earth Hour 2023
With the involvement of various Camella communities nationwide, Camella dedicated an entire day to sustainability endeavors in celebrating this year’s Earth Hour. Participating communities in Luzon include Camella Bataan, Camella San Jose Del Monte, Camella Caloocan, Camella Tarlac and Camella Capas, Camella Laoag, Camella Urdaneta, Camella Santiago, Camella Batangas, Camella Legazpi, Camella Laguna, Camella Pili, Camella Sorsogon, Camella Quezon, Camella San Juan, Camella San Pascual, and Camella Taal.
Meanwhile, in Visayas and Mindanao, Camella Aklan, Camella Dumaguete, Camella Capiz, Camella in Cebu, Camella Bohol, Camella Davao, Camella Koronadal, Camella Manors Bacolod, and Camella Manors Butuan joined the celebration.
Camella Communities Raise Awareness
To restore community well-being and improve air and water quality, Camella administered tree planting and community clean-up drive activities led by the marketing teams of every area. Enjoined by families, homeowners, and guests, Camella Bataan hosted a fun run and hand-painting activity as part of raising awareness about environmental issues in the morning with a Coachella Night Camping in the evening to cap their Earth Day celebration.
Camella communities in San Juan Del Monte, Caloocan, and Urdaneta organized grand open houses for morning activities. At the same time, residents took delight in a bonfire and movie night before the main hour of the evening. Tending to the wellness of not only the planet but also the wellness of the residents, a morning zumba session was held in Camella Santiago.
Finally, for the biggest hour on Earth, Camella joined the worldwide effort for our planet as every community turned off lights for one hour. Starting at 8:30 PM local time, Camella put off non-essential lights in each household and subdivision.
Earth Hour: How it all began
In 2007 in Eastern Australia, Earth Hour began as a global grassroots movement held annually to showcase support for the fight against climate change and to convey commitment towards a better planet by giving the earth an hour of lights off; an hour reminding us to make all the hours count. Earth Hour aims to reverse nature loss and avoid planet breach by the end of the decade. It symbolizes unity and hope as people come together to raise awareness and save the planet that sustains our present.
Disregarding the notion that only a developed nation can take climate action, the Philippines has always been sympathetic towards Earth Hour’s causes. The Department of Energy reported that the Philippines saved 62.69 megawatts of electricity in total after the observance of Earth Hour 2023 in the country. This demonstrates the power of collective and purposeful action for a better future.
Camella Earth Hour 2023
Camella’s Earth Hour efforts through the years are initiatives to stimulate passion in making an environmental impact for future generations within each community by taking accountability for their ecological footprints.
It is also a medium to promote unity and camaraderie among Camella families as they share the same sustainable goals to reduce environmental damage. This year, Camella offered efforts beyond the biggest hour by conducting a whole day of sustainable activities involving its communities to celebrate Earth Hour. Besides building homes, Camella aspires to build sustainable communities.
