"Earth Hour is an annual international event created by the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature/World Wildlife Fund), held on the last Saturday of March, that asks households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change. Based on an idea successfully executed in Thailand in 2005, it was pioneered by WWF Australia and the Sydney Morning Herald in 2007, and achieved worldwide participation in 2008"
The next Earth Hour will take place on Saturday, March 28, 2009 at 8:30 pm, local time.
In Malaysia, Earth Hour is planned and run by WWF-Malaysia and its partners. Local radio stations and news are encouraging all parties to participate in Earth Hour on the 28th of March 2009 by turning off our lights for one hour from 8.30pm-9.30pm.
What else better ways to show that we love our Planet Earth? Let's increase global awareness on world climate change. Let's save our Planet Earth. And I can't imagine how much the world is saving by turning off the non-essential lights and electrical appliances just for that one hour.
