Earth Hour 2009


The World Wildlife Fund is organizing their third annual Earth Hour, in which they ask anyone (and everyone) willing to participate to turn out the lights and unplug for one hour. It’s not as simple as it sounds. Think about all the things in your house that use energy even when you’re not using them: TV, anything that uses a remote control, your microwave, clock-radio in the bedroom, cordless phone, coffee makers with timers, nightlights that never get unplugged…

In 2007, 2.2 million people took part in the world’s first Earth Hour in Sydney Australia. Just one year later, 50 million people in 370 cities and towns, in more than 35 countries worldwide switched off their lights for Earth Hour.

Earth Hour 2009 aims to reach more than one billion people in 1000 cities around the world, inviting communities, business and governments to switch off lights for one hour at 8:30pm on Saturday March 28 and sending a powerful global message that we care enough about climate change to take action.
