one hour in the's earth hour 2015!

So, um, what are you doing this Saturday evening? No big plans, you say? That's good! I'd like to ask you something.

Will you turn the lights off in your house (or wherever you are) for one hour?

Whatever time zone you're in, turn your lights out from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. this Saturday, March 28, and join the 2015 Earth Hour movement. Organized by the World Wildlife Federation, Earth Hour started in Australia in 2007 and has grown to become a global movement promoting energy conservation and protecting the planet. Homes, commercial buildings and even entire cities are taking part in switching non-essential lights off for just one hour. Check out this long list of businesses and cities that are participating! There's even a guide for hotels that want to participate. Who in your area is on the list?

You don't even have to do anything in particular during your hour! You can light candles and have an extra ambient evening. Go outside and enjoy the nice weather. If you're a business, keep only the essential lights turned on and promote your participation by hanging a poster inside your business and letting customers know as they come in. You'll educate more than a few people!

Join in the social media and share what you're doing during your hour by tweeting @EarthHour and #EarthHour.

Just remember, you only have to turn off your lights for one hour this Saturday evening. Can you do it??
