'Earth Hour' Turns 10, Let's Ask Ourselves Are We Doing Enough?

'Earth Hour' Turns 10, Let's Ask Ourselves Are We Doing Enough?

"The Empire State Building shines a light on major global issues and is part of the worldwide conversation", Audrey Pass, chief marketing officer of Empire Realty Trust told the New York Daily News.

ON Saturday we are asked to turn off our lights for an hour between 8.30pm and 9.30pm to observe Earth Hour, which is in its 10th year of observance.

It's simple: just turn off unnecessary lights and electronics.

"Denver International Airport works hard to be a sustainability leader within the aviation industry", Scott Morrissey, DIA's senior director for sustainability, said in the release.

HollywoodLifers, are you observing Earth Hour this year?

Across the globe, millions of people from more than 170 countries will be participating in the 11th edition of the event this year to send out the message that they care about the planet. A compilation of the photos submitted to the WWF will be uploaded to their official Facebook page atwww.facebook.com/wwf.philippines to showcase endeavors in celebration of Earth Hour 2017 around the country.

Earth Hour launched in Sydney in 2007, with 2.2 million people and 2,100 businesses switching off their lights.

Earth Hour is an environment protection movement.

Despite the terror attack in Westminster on Wednesday, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben are joining more than 270 landmarks across the United Kingdom in switching off the lights for conservation charity WWF's Earth Hour. Lights will be voluntarily switched off from 8:30 to 9:00 PM from buildings, reports 24 News HD. Is an event that people celebrate annually enough to save the earth and its depleting resources? "Climate change affects everyone and it also has an impact on the continued success of our business".

If you're not shut off, you'll probably see it light up social media: There are other ways to mark it that include adding a frame to your Facebook profile picture or "donating" Facebook posts to share information on climate action.

"I would urge all West Scotland residents to show their support for tackling climate change by taking part in Earth Hour's switch off event this Saturday".
