On Saturday, March 30, this year’s Earth Hour will be celebrated. Earth Hour is a global environment movement by World Wildlife Found - WWF -, and asks for taking one action: to switch off the lights for one hour: from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Individuals, associations, businesses and cities around the world join Earth Hour switch off the lights of their homes, buildings and the most emblematic monuments in solidarity for our planet and to demonstrate their commitment to nature conservation and the fight against climate change.
Earth Hour 2019 also proposes three challenges:
A day with ZERO EMISSIONS, to prioritize the use of public transport, walking, cycling ... to reduce CO2 pollution caused by fossil fuels;
A day WITHOUT SINGLE-USE PLASTICS: every year 100 million tons of plastic are poured into nature;
A day WITHOUT MEAT CONSUMPTION, for non-vegetarians, to progressively achieve meat consumption decrease, and increase local environment fruit and vegetable consumption instead.
Ong ADDA has joined member associations that support and help disseminate the message of the EARTH HOUR.
