Do your part.
Earth Hour 2016 is on Saturday 19 March, 8.30pm – 9.30pm.
So you’re probably wondering what you can do to contribute to Earth Hour? Check out our simple tips below.
1. Unplug Electronic Appliances
At 8:25pm on Saturday 19 March, prepare for Earth Hour by unplugging all your appliances including TV, DVD player, fridge, washing machine, toaster etc.
2. Turn Off Your Lights
Turn off all the non-essential lights in your home or business. Safety is imperative so make sure you have alternative light sources handy before Earth Hour starts, like torches or flashlights to see in the dark.
3. Turn Your Computer Off
Even when your computer is idle, it still uses energy. Cut down by turning off your device for one hour during Earth Hour.
4. Share Your Commitment and Tell Your Friends About Earth Hour!
The more people that participate in Earth Hour, the more energy that is saved and awareness is raised. Share your commitment with the official Earth Hour hashtag: #ChangeClimateChange and #EarthHour
