Last Saturday of March
Turn off your lights between 8.30-9.30 p.m., it’s Earth Hour. Join millions of people all over the world and show that you care. People turn off the lights in their homes but also famous buildings and landmarks stay dark, such as Buckingham Palace, the Eiffel Tower, the Sydney Opera House and the Burj Khalifa. This should make people think about how much energy we waste.
