WWF Earth Hour. This annual event encourages us all to switch off our lights for one hour from 8.30pm. We would like to encourage as many people as possible to join hundreds of millions of people around the world to turn off your lights for one hour on Saturday 28th March to show you care about the planet.
Earth Hour is now in its eighth year and is becoming more popular every year with 162 countries taking part in 2014. Landmarks around the world including the Sydney Opera House, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace join together in supporting this worthy cause and turn their lights off for one hour. Earth Hour starts in Samoa and ends in Tahiti with many landmarks, businesses and people joining in and turning their lights off for an hour.
If you are worried about what to do whilst the lights are off why not try having dinner by candle light, or playing a board game with your family and friends, or how about practicing yoga for the hour. Of course you could always venture outside, take advantage of the reduced light pollution, and do a bit of stargazing.
Whatever you chose to do in your hour without lights make sure you register your participation on the Earth Hour website. There are lots of hints and ideas about how to spend your earth hour as well as well as more information about Earth Hour and the things that we can do to make a difference.
So why not join the Myakka team and millions of other people around the world by turning your lights off for one hour on March 28th at 8.30pm.
