Each year, we see the growing effects of climate change — from floods to droughts to glacial melting. Weather extremes, poor air quality, and diseases threaten the world around us. The good news is, we aren’t helpless.
Join millions of individuals, small businesses, corporations, and Sylvane on Saturday, March 27, at 8:30 pm (your local time) to take part in Earth Hour 2010.
All you have to do is turn your lights off for one hour. This simple action shows that you are turning out the lights on dirty air, oil dependency, and other costly climate change impacts and switching to a cleaner, more secure environment. By participating in Earth Hour 2010, you are making a bold statement about your concern for climate change.
In 2009, almost 1 billion people participated in 4,100 cities, 87 countries, and on seven continents. Even the following iconic landmarks went dark in support of Earth Hour:
- Las Vegas Strip
- Brooklyn Bridge
- Eiffel Tower
- Empire State Building
- Golden Gate Bridge
- Big Ben
To start reducing your carbon footprint now, you can weatherproof your home, purchase energy-efficient appliances, unplug appliances when you aren’t using them, use public transportation when possible, recycle, and so much more.
