It is the time when you take a stand towards bringing awareness about climate change. Just a simple off switch will show how committed you are towards creating a better future for your own Mother Earth. We give you 5 reasons why you should be a part of this global movement.
We are the first generation to be affected by climate change and the last generation that can do something to bring a positive change here. Don’t you want your future generation to live a happy and peaceful life?
Taking just small steps make a huge difference after all. You must turn off the light on leaving the room, unplug appliances when not using them, use energy saving light bulbs. All these little things make a bigger impact on the consumption of energy.

Turning off your lights for an hour is not that big a deal. It is easy and you can do so many fun things during that time. Stargaze, or simply host a candlelight party.
Your awareness and participation in the Earth Hour supports so many causes that have been adversely impacted due to climate change.
