Turn Off and Unplug For Just One Hour- Earth Hour 2011

VinTech is a big advocate of GREEN initiatives. We protect your home and business, but we also work hard to protect our Earth.

This Saturday, March 26, 2011 at 8:30pm, Earth Hour will take place. Conceived by the World Wildlife Fund in 2007, billions of people from all over the world are now contributing to this movement to help conserve energy, raise awareness, and reduce global warming by shutting off their lights and unplugging their electronic devices for 1 hour.

Last year in 2010, 126 countries participated in Earth Hour. Residents, businesses, and landmarks including Mount Rushmore, the Las Vegas Strip, the Empire State Building, Niagara Falls, Big Ben, the Sydney Opera House, the Eiffel Tower, the Parthenon, and more all shut off their lights in support of Earth Hour. It is estimated that 90,000,000 people in the US alone participated in Earth Hour last year.

Why Is It Important?


Energy consumption contributes to carbon dioxide emissions, which since the 1970’s, has dramatically increased. This increase in C02 has caused a shift in our climate, contributing to global warming, and raising the temperature by an average of 0.74 degrees C this past decade. “Human-made C02 is responsible for the vast majority of the warming. This extra greenhouse gas stems overwhelmingly from humans burning fossil fuels and destroying forests.”

Our planet’s delicate ecosystems will not survive if we continue to consume as much energy as we currently do, causing devastating, irreversible changes.

“Taking the first step is as easy as turning off your lights. By switching off your lights for one hour on Saturday, March 26, you are acknowledging and celebrating your commitment to do something more for the planet.”

VinTech makes a daily effort to conserve energy, recycle and reuse, and do our part to help preserve our planet for generations to come. We unplug all unused equipment and appliances to conserve energy. We try to print as little as possible, and if printing is required, we only use 100% recycled paper. Our marketing materials (sample pictured below) and business cards are also printed on 100% recycled paper with eco-friendly inks. We also only buy eco- friendly or recycled office supplies.

In addition, we encourage, teach, and promote IP security solutions, which helps the environment.

VinTech has participated in Earth Hour every year. We will be participating in Earth Hour this Saturday, and encourage you to participate this year too. A change for the better for our planet takes easy, small steps from individuals, like you. Let’s help save the Earth together!
