"It's time to go beyond the hour" the Earth Hour organizers are telling us

Did you know that a leaking tap can fill a bath tub in less than a week, and waste as much as 1 litre of water per hour? Did you know that research has shown as much as £1 out of every £3 spent in the UK on lighting and heating homes is wasted?
