We like to celebrate Earth Hour every year by switching the lights off for one hour with others to appreciate our planet and to think more about preserving it.
What is Earth Hour?
Earth Hour was started in 2007 by the World Wildlife Fund and other organisations for a mass lights out session in Sydney, Australia to raise awareness of Climate Change.
Now one of the biggest movements Earth Hour is held on the last weekend of March every year across the world in over 190 countries.
It has been recognised as a positive force for change.
Going beyond the hour
Earth hour raises the issue of climate change for one hour each year, but there are other ways to help every day:
- Eat more sustainably
- Waste less food
- Travel responsibly
- Eliminate plastics
- Save water
- Be energy efficient
- Protect natural spaces
- Be a conscious consumer
- Spread the word
- Stay informed
If we all practice these simple things then big change is possible.
Join an event from around the world
There are many events taking place around the world to find out more and get involved in local community projects.
Sitting in Guernsey having dinner by candle light for Earth Hour with friends was a memorable event and gets you talking about why you are doing it and why its important.
Protecting our world is a cause we will continue to support. Go green.
