Earth Hour at Zapata
Tonight the Earth Hour Celebration at Zapata was a smashing success. Volunteer organizer of the event, Yazkin brought in over 40 guests who enjoyed a wonderful dinner by candlelight. The place was packed inside and on the patio. At the stroke of 8:30 all but essential electric lights were turned off. It was a great opportunity to hold hands with your honey while dining by the glow of paper lantern covered votives.
Educational materials on a variety of environmental and sustainability topics were available along with collection containers for aluminum cans for recycling.
I bet this is the first of several eco-economic promotions in our fair city.
Thanks to Yazkin for such a creative take on Earth Hour, Tixie for helping get the word out and Phil and Connie for assisting with educational content. Here's Yazkin at the info table.
