Earth hour

Earth Hour will be celebrated on March 23 from 8:30pm to 9:30pm. Earth Hour is an annual event where people, businesses, and cities around the globe are urged to turn off as many lights and electrical gadgets as they can for one hour. While this saves electricity, the bigger goal is to create awareness in people about simple changes they can make in their lifestyles to help our planet. Earth Hour began in Sydney, Australia in 2007. Last year, hundreds of millions of people in 152 countries turned off their lights for an hour. If it is okay with others in your home, turn off your lights this year! For more information, you can visit http://www.earthhour.org.
