Earth Hour 2021 Tonight From 8:30-9:30 PM @EarthHour
Earth Hour is a worldwide movement held annually encouraging individuals, communities, and businesses to turn off non-essential electric lights, for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. This year the Earth Hour global team is recommending that we all participate in Earth Hour virtually! EarthHour.org has compiled 20+ things you can do from the comfort of your home!
But just because you’re staying at home, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a memorable Earth Hour on-the-night experience! We’ve put together a list of 20 things you can do at home or online this Earth Hour (Saturday, March 27 at 8:30 pm your local time) to spend the Hour with us, and help support our planet while you’re at it! Spending Earth Hour with your young ones? We’ve got ideas for that too!
Be sure to share your Earth Hour experience with us using the hashtag #EarthHour! Also tag us @EarthHourOfficial on Instagram, @EarthHour on Facebook and @EarthHour on Twitter so we can easily share your posts and stories!
Ideas for everyone:
