In 2007, more than 2 million people and 2,000 businesses took a stand against global climate change in Sydney, Australia, by turning off their lights. The following year, Earth Hour became an annual initiative that attracted 50 million participants. And in 2010, the event reached records with 128 countries and territories involved.
Organized by World Wildlife Fund (WFF), Earth Hour is held on the last Saturday of March. For an hour, individuals, families and businesses around the world simply turn off their lights and electrical appliances in a joint effort to raise awareness about the importance of saving our planet.
