The idea of involving these food ambassadors in Earth Hour is to encourage everyone to make three direct changes that will result in a positive impact on the environment – eating less meat, sourcing sustainable seafood and using local produce.
Celebrity chef Bill Granger who has been announced as Earth Hour Australia ambassador for 2012, said, “WWF's Earth Hour is a unique event that celebrates the wonder of the natural world and getting involved is a must for those who love food.”
