This Saturday March 29th from 8:30-9:30pm is Earth Hour, the largest environmental movement in history. Be a part of it by turning your lights off to symbolize your support for Mother Nature.
What is Earth Hour?
Earth Hour is the largest environmental movement in history and it’s sponsored annually by the World Wide Fund WWF. It’s purpose is to bring people from around the world together for 1 hour in solidarity and support of Mother Nature. The event has grown to include over 7000 cities and towns worldwide that participate by turning their lights off from 8:30-9:30pm (local time) as a symbol of their commitment to the planet.
Why Do We Care?
I started Vermont Woods Studios in 2005 as my personal attempt to be part of the solution to environmental care, especially in the area of forest and wildlife conservation. Since then I’ve been fortunate enough to find a small cadre of brilliant professionals, willing to work long hours in an effort to get this sustainable furniture company up and running. Today I can say we’re making great strides and much of that is attributed to our commitment to a mission that we believe in. Earth hour symbolizes that mission.
How Can You Participate?
It’s easy and fun to be a part of Earth Hour this Saturday, March 29th at 8:30pm. Check out WWF’s Earth Hour website for things to do while the lights are out. Candlelight dinners, star-gazing, nighttime bike rides, moonlit picnics and more.
Curious about what others in your city are doing for Earth Hour? Here’s a map showing various celebrations across America and a list of cities, buildings and businesses that are participating. Around New England you’ll find dozens of activities including dramatic displays in New York City’s Times Square and the Empire State Building and dimming of the lights in locations all around Boston. If you add your name to the movement this Saturday, share photos with us at Vermont Woods Studios (Twitter and Facebook #earthhour). Together we can make a difference!
