Preparing for Earth Hour 2009


Last year, its estimated 50 million people around the world took part in Earth Hour. It’s a “little” idea that started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia. The plan was simple. All of Sydney would kill the lights for 1 hour. Imagine the energy-saving, earth-saving impact!

It’s not such a little idea anymore. In 2008 cities all over the world took part, from New York City, Los Angeles, London and Rome to Moscow, Toronto, Manila and Hong Kong, and many more, but this year, Earth Hour 2009 could be even bigger.

Earth Hour is sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund and goes down at 8:30 PM on Saturday, March 28, 2009, visit for more. So, will you go dark? I am.
