Linette Mathewson, a member of Laning Avenue School’s environmental committee (and our favorite ad salesperson), would like to invite you to participate in Earth Hour this Saturday, March 26, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. Earth Hour is a way to show you are concerned about climate change by switching off your lights for one hour.

Earth Hour began as a single-city initiative in Sydney, Australia in 2007 and has since grown into a global movement. Hundreds of millions of people from more than 4,500 cities and towns in 128 countries across every continent switched off their lights for Earth Hour 2010, making history as the world’s greatest ever environmental action. Some of the world’s most famous man-made marvels and natural wonders went dark, including China’s Forbidden City, Eiffel Tower, Table Mountain, Great Pyramids of Egypt, Buckingham Palace, Brazil’s Christ the Redeemer statue, Niagara and Victoria Falls, Empire State Building and the Sydney Opera House.

Take a minute to watch the video below, then plan on going dark for a bit on Saturday evening.
