Earth Hour – April 22 at 8:30 p.m.
The World Wide Fund for Nature will host Earth Hour again this year from 8:30-9:30 p.m. local time. It’s a great chance to take an hour off from your usual routine. Go stargazing with friends, or have game night by candlelight for something different and fun. Whatever trick you use, join the lights-off hour and turn off non-essential lights as a symbol of your commitment to our planet.
Recycle – Don’t toss your old bulbs in the trash!
Be sure to recycle your light bulbs and compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs) to keep harmful chemicals, such as mercury found in CFLs, out of our soil and water. There are several easy recycling solutions available. Learn more here.

The Power of Recycling
Constellation recently named 96 new grant recipients through its Community Champions program, which is dedicated to honoring local nonprofit organizations in the 27 states Constellation services. Constellation and StarTex Power customers are able to apply for a grant up to $500 that benefits local non-profits with missions spanning education, youth development and environmental projects.
Twenty five percent of survey participants in FEMA’s 2011 survey said the cost of preparing for a hurricane and confusion surrounding hurricane preparedness meant they did not take as many steps to secure their home as they could have! At Constellation, we wanted to make the process of preparing for a hurricane easier.
Any pests in your home are cause for concern. They’re annoying, could bite and spread diseases, and they can damage your house.
