How Earth Hour Works

Turn your lights off this Saturday, March 27th from 8:30-9:30 PM EST for Earth Hour.

Regardless of where you are on the planet, you can have an effect and support nature by turning off your devices and lights for one hour.

This essentially helps us save electricity to help our planet. 

Considering the COVID-19 pandemic, Earth Hour Worldwide is encouraging all people to participate on the web/carefully whenever the situation allows. In the event that you are wanting to be in a public space or are considering going through the hour with loved ones outside your home, follow neighborhood rules, make sure to wear a mask, and keep a friendly social distance.

If you’re taking part in your first ever Earth Hour experience watch the videos on all the social media platforms of the Earth Hour Organization. To stay updated they ask to follow them on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook

The Earth Hour Organization is also holding a virtual celebration on Zoom a half an hour before the Earth Hour starts. If you’re interested check out this link for more events online.
