Participate in "Earth Hour"


Organized by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Earth Hour began in Australia in 2007 when 2.2 million homes and businesses simultaneously turned off their lights for one hour. The following year, Earth Hour expanded past Australia to include 50 million people turning off their lights. This year, the WWF has set an aggressive goal of 1 billion homes and businesses turning off their lights for an hour. Major landmarks and companies around the globe will be participating this year to make it known that they care about the environment and the effects of global warming. To participate in Earth Hour, simply turn off your lights on Saturday March 28, from 8:30pm-9:30pm local time.
