Earth Hour 2013 is March 23 at 8:30 p.m.
At that time, regardless of where in the world you are, the challenge is to shut off your lights for one hour in the name of saving the environment.
Six years ago, the Earth Hour project was born. Today, Earth Hour is recognized as the world’s largest mass participation event in history.
In addition to the original challenge of switching off your lights, the team behind Earth Hour has created unique ideas and suggestions to get involved for individuals, corporations and organizations interested in making a larger impact during the hour and every hour beyond the hour.
Visit Earth Hour’s website and discover how you can get involved.
Your challenge could be as easy as downloading free social media avatars, badges, posters and video to share in hopes of spreading more awareness.
Or, your challenge could be more involved.
Last year, Miranda created a “I will if you will yoga challenge.” See if her challenge was met.
Challenge yourself. Challenge your friends. Challenge your kids.
Above all, have fun doing it! Happy Earth Hour 2013!
