Earth Hour 2015 Turn out the lights on March 28th
For the past few years, my husband and I have enjoyed participating in Earth Hour. For one hour, we purposefully turned off and unplugged nearly everything in our house (except the refrigerator and furnace). We turned our heat way down, so the furnace wouldn't kick on. Then we planted ourselves in front of the fireplace and played Bananagrams by candlelight. We enjoyed it so much, we rarely turned on the lights until well after 10 or 11 p.m.
Unfortunately, this year, I will be on the road at 8:30 on Saturday night and will not be able to participate. So Bill and I will just have to find an alternate evening to honor the Earth. But that doesn't mean you can't participate!
After all, people have committed to reducing their carbon emissions for this one hour all around the globe. They're raising their voices, in the darkness, to demand strong action from world leaders.
Won't you join them in a collective display of your commitment to creating a better future for the planet? Turn off the lights at 8:30 p.m. local time and take a stand against climate change.
