Tonight at 8:30 pm is Earth Hour.
But what is Earth Hour?
"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, engaging millions of people in more than 180 countries and territories. It has become a catalyst for positive environmental impact, driving major legislative changes by harnessing the power of the people."
All over the world people, businesses, and cities are turning out the lights off to increase environmental awareness. This year, Earth Hour comes in the midst of the global pandemic of COVID-19. Earth is not just the environment in which we live, but it is also our global community, our home. This Earth Hour we want to invite you to join us in #stayinghome and rocking some family fun Earth Hour activities at home.
