Earth Hour - An Opportunity to Make a Difference
3/23/2013 8:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Since 2007, World Wildlife Fund’s Earth Hour event has inspired individuals, communities and businesses around the world to turn off their lights for one hour to help protect our planet from climate change. Awareness of our environmental challenges and the commitment to act sustainably have increased to the point that people in 7,000 cities in 152 countries on all seven continents participated in the 2012 event.
Although the City models this type of energy efficiency year-round in its buildings, all non-essential City Hall lights will be turned off during Earth Hour. Shoreline invites all residents and businesses to help make a difference by turning off all non-essential lights from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Pacific time on Saturday, March 23.
