Earth Hour was a simple idea that turned into a global phenomenon, with hundreds of millions of people coming together to display a commitment to protect the one thing that unites us all – our planet. We only have one planet and all of us can help protect it in some way. Earth Hour actually originated in Ireland and starts with Churches and communities throughout Ireland – and the globe switching off their lights at 8:30 p.m. March 28, 2015 and reflecting on awareness and a commitment to create a better future for the planet.
Earth Hour is more than just this hour as you will see by this logo that is being used Nationally—60 + Earth Hour is about getting everyone to use “Your Power” to change climate change. We ask that you focus on your commitment to our planet for the rest of this year. That means making a commitment to a continual change throughout the year that reduces your impact on the environment, culminating in a celebration of your commitment to the planet with the people of the world during Earth Hour.
Join us and be a part of the largest environmental grassroots movement on the planet!
