On Saturday, March 19th we celebrate Earth Hour, a one-hour event in which participants are encouraged to “power down” for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m in their local time zone, to help raise awareness about climate change.
We'll participate by turning off our neon signs at all three stores for the duration of the hour. We'll have regular store hours, so you’re still free to come in.
Everyone can join in for Earth Hour. It can be as simple as turning off the TV, non-essential lights and playing a board game by candlelight with friends and family. Any small way you do it, you can’t go wrong.
The event is organized by WWF and volunteer organizations around the world. It famously began in 2007 with a lights-off event in Sydney and has since grown to include more than 172 countries and territories worldwide. Find out more at earthhour.org.
Watch a video highlighting last year’s participants in Earth Hour, which includes such famous landmarks as the Eiffel Tower turning off their lights for one hour.
