I believe there will be even more companies and restaurants joining in the light-less, fan-less and aircon-less activity this year during the Earth hour...so do dress appropriately if you are heading out...=P
Alot of people do know about Earth Hour as they might be 'involved' in the light-less, fan-less and aircon-less activity just by being customers at participating restaurants. I was 'involved' too 4 years ago when i had dinner with the RSS gang at Walas....luckly, i was appropriately dressed (in a tube + berms)... =)
But alot of people does not know about Earth day (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth_Day).... as activities are mainly not as ra-ra and 'fun' as those of Earth Hour and are mainly green activities lead by various volunteer groups.... (http://www.ecowalkthetalk.com/blog/2011/04/12/earth-day-singapore-2011/)
So just to create more awareness and ra-ra for Earth Day, I had decided to spearhead a flash mob on to create more awareness about EARTH DAY through facebook event with the following details ... =).....
