One hour can make a big difference!
Earth Hour started as an idea in Australia in 2007 and immediately became a global action in 2008 and every year its influence spreads. For those who would like to know more about how this idea to its international awareness raising status today check out the History of Earth Day.
It may not seem like a big deal to turn off the lights and all powered things in your home (or workplace) for an hour, but the impacts collectively make a huge difference.
And as they say on the WWF site (that's World Wildlife Fund, not the wrestling federation)"there’s more to it than switching off lights for one hour once a year. It’s all about giving people a voice and working together to create a better future for our planet."
So as the Earth Hour event continues to spread and more and more people in communities around the world participate, the number of ways you can participate continues to grow as well!
