This Saturday, March 24th, you can join millions of people in the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment. How? Earth Hour is a symbolic lights out hour that takes place around the world starting at 8:30pm, your local time. While you may be joining out of solidarity, the hour symbolizes larger environmental change. According to Earth Hour’s website, “From changing individual behavior, to legislation, Earth Hour has achieved massive environmental impact - but as climate change accelerates, our response needs to grow too.” Earth Hour works with WWF to bring awareness and real change to the way we treat and protect our planet.
