Earth Hour sheds 'green' darkness across the country
Environmentally minded citizens around the world will turn their lights off for one hour Saturday at 8:30 p.m. local time in an attempt to raise awareness for environmental issues.
“We are showing everyone that the world’s environmental issues don’t have to overwhelm us,” organizers from the World Wildlife Fund wrote on the campaign’s website. “Small things we do every day can make a better future.”
The event will darken nonessential lights in landmarks, businesses, and cities across the country, from Niagara Falls to the Empire State Building to the Alaska Zoo.
