Held every year on the last Saturday of March, Earth Hour is a global event created by WWF to engage individuals, businesses and governments around the world in a show of support for environmental protection.
During Earth Hour, people are encouraged to turn off all non-essential lights for one hour as a symbolic gesture to show their commitment to combating climate change. While the event began as a city-wide initiative in Sydney, Australia in 2007, it has since grown into a global movement with millions of people participating each year.
In addition to helping raise awareness about the need to take action on climate change, Earth Hour is also an opportunity for people to celebrate our planet and its many wonders. From enjoying candlelit dinners with family and friends to stargazing or simply spending time outdoors, there are many ways to enjoy Earth Hour while still making a difference.
So this year, make a pledge to switch off your lights and do your part to help protect our planet!
2) "Every minute counts when it comes to saving our planet."
3) "We all have the power to make a difference in the fight against climate change."
4) "The decisions we make today will determine the future of our planet."
5) "It's time for us to come together and take action on climate change."
6) "Let's show the world that we're committed to protecting our planet!"
7) " Earth Hour is a reminder that each one of us can make a difference."
8) "By working together, we can create a brighter future for our planet."
9) "Every little bit counts when it comes to saving the Earth."
10) "Let's do our part to make sure our planet has a future!"
