Switch your lights OFF for Earth Hour on Saturday!

What IS Earth Hour 2009 I hear you ask??

Earth Hour 2009 is a global 'call to action' to every individual, every business and every community across the globe! A call to stand up, to take responsibility and to get involved in working towards a more sustainable future.

Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia with 2.2 million homes and businesses turning their lights off for one whole hour. Only a year later this event had become a global sustainability movement with up to 100 million people across 35 countries participating. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.

In 2009... at 8:30pm on Saturday March 28, Earth Hour are asking people across the world to turn off their lights and join together in creating the vital conversation about the future of our precious planet. Earth Hour is a message of hope and a message of action. Everyone can make a difference.

It’s as simple as a flick of the switch!
