Earth Hour 2016 – Shine Your Light on Climate Action
As a HUGE advocate of protecting this big blue marble we call home, once again this year I like to dedicate a post to the upcoming Earth Hour 2016. I love being part of this yearly event. It’s something all of us can celebrate and is as simple as turning off the lights and or unplugging for an hour on Saturday March 19, 2016 8:30 pm your local time.
What is Earth Hour?
Not sure what it is? Here’s a great description from essentially where it all began:
“Earth Hour is a worldwide grassroots movement uniting people to protect the planet, and is organised by World Wildlife Federation. Engaging a massive mainstream community on a broad range of environmental issues, Earth Hour was famously started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007. Since then it has grown to engage more than 7000 cities and towns worldwide, and the one-hour event continues to remain the key driver of the now larger movement.”
