What exactly is Earth Hour?
For one hour every year, the world unites to show its dedication to protecting the environment by turning off non-essential lights and electricity in homes, hotels, and businesses. It is incredibly important that we help our earth through ways such as this, plus we can go one step further and make sure our old electrical equipment is repurposed or recycled so that it has a use elsewhere without it ending up on a landfill and polluting our environment further. Anyone with an old electrical device may want to look into computer recycling, microwave recycling, phone recycling, and so on, to help us all come together and stop the damage being done to the environment with the equipment that we use.
Earth Hour 2016 is on Saturday 19 March 2015, 8.30pm – 9.30pm (Local Time).
At Amari, we are passionate about environmental conservation and that’s why our hotels participate in Earth Hour every year. Check out a few photos from previous year’s events.
However, it’s important to note that Earth Hour is much more than just switching lights off; it’s a stand against climate change and a global dedication to protecting the environment. The act of turning off our lights has now become an iconic symbol of people’s concern for protecting our planet, our home. So let’s do what we can, while we can.
