Earth Hour 2016 will be this Saturday, March 19, from 8:30 – 9:30pm. This is an event sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund to encourage communities to take action on climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
From Earth Hour:
Less than three months ago, leaders from 196 nations signed a historic agreement in Paris to take collective action on climate change, clearly showing that we are at a turning point in our fight to cut carbon pollution.
What is Earth Hour? Every year in March millions of people around the world celebrate Earth Hour by turning out their lights from 8:30 to 9:30 pm local time.
I’ll be turning out my lights and hope you’ll join me. Sign up for Mobile Action Team updates and get a text message reminder from me to turn off your lights on Earth Hour day.
Text HOUR to 69866 to sign up today.
You’ll join our list of engaged mobile activists and opt in to receive text messages on the latest opportunities to help World Wildlife Fund protect wildlife and conserve nature. Standard messaging rates apply.
So, this Saturday from 8:30 to 9:30, turn off the TV, turn out the lights, and encourage your neighbors to do the same. Take pictures of your home and neighborhood and share them with us on facebook and twitter with #EarthHour.
Remember, make Earth Day every day!
