An Hour Without Power
When Is Earth Hour?
Earth Hour is held on the last Saturday of March each year, usually from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. local time
What Is Earth Hour?
Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million homes and businesses turned their lights off for one hour to make their stand against climate change.
Only a year later and Earth Hour had become a global conservation movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries participating. The numbers have increased every year! Soon the whole world will participate.
Global landmarks such as the, Sydney Harbour Bridge, The CN Tower in Toronto, The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and Rome’s Colosseum, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.
Here at Planetpals we believe that Earth Hour should be just the beginning. We want you to think about the energy you use everyday after that.
