Ten-year-old eco-blogger creates Earth Hour campaign. Stop. Start. Continue.

TORONTO Canada Earth Hour 2013.
Out of the mouth of babes. One of the most popular kid bloggers 10-year-old Toronto-based Hannah Alper ( ) launched her STOP. START. CONTINUE. campaign for Earth Hour 2013. Happening Saturday March 23th from 8:30pm-9:30pm (ET).

Hannah feels that kids are passionate about supporting causes that promote help and change for the environment. “Earth Hour should be a time to connect with your family and friends to talk about and renew your commitment to the environment.”

This Pledge and certificate encourages individuals and families to consider what they can do in the year ahead for the well-being of the environment.”

“Earth Hour encourages all of us to unplug and shut off. I want people to really think about why they are shutting down for the hour. And think about what they can do to help. We can all do something.”

Hannah hopes The Pledge that is available in four pdf formats to download and print from her blog will find a place in the home, office or classroom. And will be proudly displayed to make families and kids feel good to remind them of their commitment.

A few of Hannah’s Ideas for The Pledge.

• Littering.
• Using plastic water bottles.
• Leaving lights on when you leave the room.
• Using plastic bags.
• Throwing out what can be donated or reused such as clothes, toys or books.

• Unplug electronics when not using them.
• Organize a cleanup in my neighborhood.

Get involved with local causes.
• Grow a garden.
• Turn off the water when you are brushing your teeth.

When you power down for the hour she wants you to spend that time and think about what you can do. What you change. What you can stop, start and continue. Three things that’s it. Those three things add up to a big difference.
