Earth Hour: What is it?
Did you know that Toronto was the first city to sign-up to Earth Hour in 2008 after the success of the first year in Sydney, Australia? Over 400 cities in 35 countries quickly followed making it a truly global movement. Since then, Canada has engaged 15 million Canadians year over year. Earth Hour is a bit like an environmental New Year, providing us with a chance to reflect on our planet and what we can do to help. In 2012, millions of Canadians will come together again on Saturday March 31 between 8:30 PM – 9:30 PM.
