I am going to turn off the lights in march 27 because we have to look after our beloved Earth. Now that the human-being is being so destructive we have to be more careful than ever with the Earth. The Earth is the reason of why we are living so we have to look after it. At school we do what is called compost with our leftovers, and the those leftovers become into plants

Mrs. Ale,
I think we should turn the lights off on the 27th of March so as to let natural light brighten up our homes and minds. I think this is a good opportunity to, through a small gesture, show others that we must be more responsible with our energy consumption and, more importantly, energy waste. Also, we can apply this to other things apart from electricity, like water, paper and even our food. Consuming to satisfy are needs, but always responsibly, will make for a better and healthier society, country and world. Let’s give the lights a break and let the world shine!

I am going to do that! I think that the idea is amazing because if all of us put something of us we can help a lot!! It is a good idea to help, because doing this is helping our future sons, our future family. But the only thing I would change is the our. I would do that in the day. Because at night is a little bit compicated, because is the time when I go to bath, when I ate, when humans do many things! But it is still a very good idea!
Regards, see you tomorrow!

Hi!
It's very important to take care of the environment for many reason but the most important is that we need Earth we need to take care of it. It is our home were we live. Without it we wouldn't have were to go, we wouldn't exist!
Earth now a days is so damaged because of us, human race. God has give as were to live and we don't take care of it. We destroy it without even thinking. Every day more damage is caused.
In school we learn a lot of this, how to take care of water, earth, air and every thing that has to do with were we live and how we live.
YES TO THE 3R(recycle, reuse and reduce)

Miss Ale,
In my house we will do what the post says, my father and my mother knew it from before but it was a good idea. I will tell all my family in Uruguay to do the same we will do. It is a good demonstration to earth that we all care about it. All people should vote yes and do what it says in the post,

Dear all,
This is worldwide. They have been saying it on TV, on the radio. It is for an hour. It makes me happy to read that you have reflected on this issue regarding the environment.
Have a good day!

Hello there! (:
I think your blog is very interesting and creative. I joined Earth Day because I think it is a great way to cause awareness for the world. I really like how you put a poll so you ask people for their opinions. It's also kind of fun to do the polls.

Hello Miss Ale!

Thats kind of obvious.. i want to save the planet. Our planet has to have people on top of him and its very contaminated and we have to turn off the lights minimum 1 day per year. (every day) The 27 from 8:30 to 9:30 all my house had turn off all the lights, and we had to use CANDLES! it was kind of cool.

Keep on blogging
