Punjas Group of Companies subsidiary Ocean Soaps Limited yesterday renewed their commitment towards Earth Hour 2015.

Ocean Soaps general manager Chetan Punja said, “Ocean soaps supports Earth Hour 2015 as done in the past seven years and it focus on climate change through an interconnected global community.”

He said everyone had the power to empower our communities to come together and make a difference.

“Our challenge is a global one and every act of positivity starts with small steps and has the potential to make leaps and bounds,” Mr Punja said.

“We must raise awareness about climate change so that our communities are mindful that there is a need for an interconnect approach. Then we can propagate a mutual goal towards creating a sustainable future for our next generations.”

He said Ocean Soaps as an established company in Fiji would like to inspire more companies throughout Fiji to respond to efforts inspired by World Wild Fund (WWF).

WWF Pacific communications manager Mary Rokonadravu thanked the company for its commitment.

“It was discovered in 1961 that conservation alone was not enough to bring change in environmental issues in the world that’s how WWF was founded,” she said.

She said Earth Hour was not only putting aside 60 minutes but it’s about human relationships.

Earth Hour will be celebrated on Saturday, March 29, from 8.30pm-9.30pm.

Fundraising will also mark the day to help disadvantaged communities like Mali islanders in Vanua Levu.

President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau, the Earth Hour Ambassador for Fiji, will be hosting a candle-lit dinner at the Novotel Suva Lami Bay hotel.
