Earth Hour 2015
Today, March 28th, 2015, marks the ninth annual Earth Hour. From its humble beginnings in Sydney, Australia, this worldwide celebration has grown to include events from over 126 countries and territories! Have you participated in Earth Hour celebrations before? Will you partake this year? Gather some friends, wrangle your family, and talk to your co-workers about get an event started in your area!
What does it take to participate? Not much! The easiest way to celebrate Earth Hour is to simply turn off all non essential lights and unplug your electronic devices. Find some good company, a couple of candles, and enjoy some time chatting, telling stories, or playing games. It may feel like one hour of this won't make much of an impact, but the intention of this worldwide event is to remind us that we are all on this planet together. It is up to us to work alongside one another to create more sustainable ways of life for the present and for the future. If we don't pause to reflect on our impacts now, when will we?
Earth Hour 2015 - March 28th, 2015 from 8:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. local time.
