Help Celebrate Earth Hour March 23, 2013

Earth Hour 2013

 

These days, caring for our planet can feel overwhelming. But every step taken helps, and on Saturday March 23, 2013 from 8:30 to 9:30 pm, we can each join hundreds of millions of people in more than 152 countries across every continent in switching off the lights for a designated Earth Hour.

By committing to this positive action for the planet and encouraging friends and neighbors to do the same, you will help lead people everywhere to realize their role as custodians of the planet. Earth Hour also provides an excellent forum for all citizens, including business, faith groups, individuals, parents and educators, to hold meaningful discussions about the ways that our community can take action and be part of the solution to our environmental challenges throughout the year.

We hope many of you will join us by turning off your lights from 8:30 to 9:30 pm on Saturday, March 23. A commitment to Earth Hour would enable all of us here in the High Country to not only take a small step for the health of our local environment, but also to let all the people of the world know that we stand with them in finding solutions to our environmental challenges and celebrating the one thing we all have in common – the planet.
