TV Personality and Earth Hour Ambassador Nadya Hutagalung shares her tips for going beyond the hour

I am just one person, what can I do to make a meaningful difference? These are the words I hear all too often. In fact, it’s really easy yet important to make positive change as an individual. I am going to share one easy thing you can do:
Change your diet.

It is good for the planet if you choose to eat a plant based diet.Eating less meat also has great health benefits and consequently lowers your ecological footprint.

Look for local, seasonal organic produce that is becoming readily available. Believe it or not, we have farms even in a Mega City like Singapore to buy produce from!
It's no longer expensive to choose to live a more conscious lifestyle as there are more and more local farmers markets springing up. This is an important trend that we need to support.You can also start a little veggie patch of your own. If a garden is not available, use your windowsill or balcony to grow some herbs; in Asia you could grow lime and chili too.

If for health reasons you can't become fully vegetarian, flirt with being a veggo a few times a week, or every other day.

So there you have it, one of the easiest, more affordable ways of going beyond the hour. For more info on how to go beyond the hour you can log on to
