Michael Associates Vote to Save Planet Earth

Leicester, UK - 13 March 2009

Michael Associates and all its divisions have decided to join the World Wildlife Funds’ VOTE EARTH campaign on Saturday 28th March. They will join millions of people switching off their lights between 8.30 -9.30 pm. This year, Earth Hour has been transformed into the world’s first global election, between Earth and global warming.

For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming. WWF are urging the world to VOTE EARTH and reach the target of 1 billion votes, which will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009.

This meeting will determine official government policies to take action against global warming, which will replace the Kyoto Protocol. It is the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard.

Michael Cheung, Creative Director said “We all have a vote, and every single vote counts. Together we can take control of the future of our planet, for future generations. We pride ourselves on being a green company and whole hearted support the WWF & the Earth Hour campaign”

Join us by simply switching off your lights for one hour, and join the world for Earth Hour.

WWF Earth Hour Notes
Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness. In 2009, Earth Hour is being taken to the next level, with the goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights as part of a global vote. Unlike any election in history, it is not about what country you’re from, but instead, what planet you’re from. VOTE EARTH is a global call to action for every individual, every business, and every community.

A call to stand up and take control over the future of our planet. Over 74 countries and
territories have pledged their support to VOTE EARTH during Earth Hour 2009, and this
number is growing everyday.
