Candlelight. Good tunes. Great coffee. Sounds like a perfect way for people to spend Earth Hour and many people did just that at most of our shops Last Saturday. All ages came out to support the WWF’s Earth Hour initiative, which started in 2007 with 2 million people in Australia and has now grown to over a billion supporters. If you have any photos from a store’s event, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and they’ll get put up!
The Museum of Science and Technology also hosted a star party for experienced astronomers or those just starting out. Alana (from Golden) and Sage served over 400 cups of hot chocolate and coffee to the chilled astronomers and still had time to make it out to see Orion’s nebula and Saturn too! Big thanks to the lovely Beechwood staff who filled all those cambros and helped us out so much! We couldn’t have done it without you!
