In the newest installment of the Ever Wondered Series, we are gearing up for Earth Hour 2021. I know what you’re thinking- what is Earth Hour?
It’s actually pretty simple to participate and get your family involved. All you have to do is turn your lights off from 8:30-9:30 p.m. tomorrow the 27th. How much easier could it get?
Why does it matter?
I’ll share the quote directly from WWF’s website: “Started by WWF and partners as a symbolic lights-out event in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour is now one of the world’s largest grassroots movements for the environment. Held every year on the last Saturday of March, Earth Hour engages millions of people in more than 180 countries and territories, switching off their lights to show support for our planet.
But Earth Hour goes far beyond the symbolic action of switching off – it has become a catalyst for positive environmental impact, driving major legislative changes by harnessing the power of the people and collective action.
Earth Hour is open-source and we welcome everyone, anyone, to take part and help amplify our mission to unite people to protect our planet.”
