Earth Hour - reduce the energy consumption and save our natural resources

Earth Hour is all about spreading the awareness of environmental issues in our global and local communities. It is a annual global event organized by WWF (World Wild Fund for Nature) encouraging individuals, communities, corporates, and households to turn off their lights to show support for fight against climate change and commitment towards better planet. Every year on the last Saturday of the month of March from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., millions across the world choose to turn off their lights for one hour to celebrate their commitment to the planet. Earth hour 2015 will be on Saturday, March 28, from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.. Earth Hour has its origins in Australia, when back in 2008 a movement started to turn off all the lights in order to save energy and promote awareness about environmental issues. As the years went on, its popularity grew and Earth Hour became a global phenomenon. Because of the overwhelming success of Earth Hour, WWF has now become a worldwide sponsor and is moving to increase more awareness through crowd funding initiatives. Earth Hour is a day organised by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) across countries to raise awareness on how energy consumption affects the environment. The day is generally celebrated towards the end of March and the date changes every year. Earth Hour 2019 will be observed on March 30 between 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm. Those participating in Earth Hour are encouraged to switch off lights and other electrical appliances at homes, workplaces and other institutions encouraging less use of electricity. Famous landmarks, monuments, governmental buildings, housing societies, popular streets around the globe often participate in the event highlighting the need for energy consumption. Moreover, the day is a reminder of how human activities have caused a large-scale impact on the planet. Earth Hour tries to inspire people to take action to save nature and the planet from further destruction. It motivates people to use environmentally-friendly products and push the implementation of laws that benefit nature. Earth Hour 2018-2020 tries to kickstart widespread conversations on the loss of nature and the urgency to protect it.
