Earth Hour 2010 – 27th March 2010

Earth Hour 2010

 
 We all observed the Earth Hour in 2009.

 

This year too, let us observe it and be a part of this global campaign!

 

Let us support this cause by switching off all non-essential lights for an hour from 8:30 PM to 9:30 PM.

 

“In March 2009, hundreds of millions of people took part in the third Earth Hour. Over 4000 cities in 88 countries officially switched off to pledge their support for the planet, making Earth Hour 2009 the world’s largest global climate change initiative. Earth Hour 2010 takes place on Saturday 27 March at 8.30pm and is a global call to action to every individual, every business and every community throughout the world. It is a call to stand up, to take responsibility, to get involved and lead the way towards a sustainable future. Iconic buildings and landmarks from Europe to Asia to the Americas will stand in darkness. People across the world from all walks of life will turn off their lights and join together in celebration and contemplation of the one thing we all have in common – our planet. “

 

Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million homes and businesses turned their lights off for one hour to make their stand against climate change. Only a year later and Earth Hour had become a global sustainability movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries participating.

 

So, are you ready to power off tomorrow from 8:30 PM to 9:30 PM?

 

Let us take the vow and show it in action!
