Earth Hour 2017 is just about upon us. It’s time to
“Turn Up The Dark”

Earth Hour 2017 coming up this weekend. In staying with my roots as an advocate for this big blue marble we call home, I like to dedicate a post to this event. So it’s time for a shout out for Mother Earth!

“Each year, millions of people around the globe unite for an hour to celebrate our amazing planet. Will you join us for Earth Hour in 2017?”

In 2016 over 12,700 major landmarks switched off the lights, 178 countries and territories participated and 2.4 million people got involved and took actions.

My past outings to such Earth Day events has always been such positive experiences — opportunities to speak to like-minded individuals passionate about protecting the Planet, learn of new eco-innovations or in my case, last year, to come home with an armful of little sapling pine trees to plant!

It’s great for families to get outside with their kids. To turn off the electronics and take a Nature break.
