Earth Hour is this Saturday!

What are your plans for Earth Hour 2019?

This Saturday, March 30th at 8:30 pm local time, the Empire State Building, the Space Needle, Niagara Falls, and millions of people, landmarks, cities and businesses from around the world will turn off their lights for one hour to show their steadfast commitment to protecting nature as we celebrate Earth Hour.

“Our connection to Earth and nature is undeniable: our planet’s gain is everyone’s gain.

Nature not only provides us with all the things we need to live – from the air we breathe to the water we drink, and from the shelter we need to the economy we rely on – but also makes our lives better. However, its growing loss puts this all under threat.” ~ Earth Hour 2019

With the looming impacts of climate change and preponderance of climate denial, taking a stand for the environment is more important now than ever.

You can go it alone or get your business involved!

Pledge for the Planet and sign up to switch off at Earth Hour to register and show your support:

Aramis and I have been switching the lights off in observance of Earth Hour for many years now:

Why don’t you snap a photo of how you’re reducing your energy consumption (and hopefully having fun) this Saturday for Earth Hour and share it on social media? We’ll do the same and re-post yours.


Hope to *see* you in the dark this Saturday March 30 at 8:30 – 9:30 wherever you are in the world!
