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.
Considering all the craziness going on with our current reckless administration – wanting to strip away important protections for clean air and water like the EPA, this is important – now more than ever!
You too can get involved…
Earth Hour is essentially 60 minutes to protect the planet. But it’s really much more than that. There are countless ways you may get involved. From attending events to organizing and hosting your own local events. You can even add your support to climate projects worldwide.
At the very least, unplug your phone and turn off your devices! Light candles and have a picnic with friends – even if it’s indoors. You can still enjoy the simplicities that one hour of disconnecting can afford. Good for your soul too 🙂
“Around the globe, millions of people, businesses, and landmarks set aside an hour to host events, switch off their lights, and make noise for climate change action. This year Earth Hour is at 8:30pm on 25 March 2017.”
