About Earth Hour
Earth Hour started as a city-wide initiative in Sydney, Australia in 2007 where people turned off non-essential lights for one hour. Thanks to cooperative action taken by people from all walks of life all over the world, Earth Hour is now the world's largest collective environmental action. By celebrating this symbolic “lights off” hour, Earth Hour participants are sending a powerful message and saying “We want to make a difference to our future!”
Give the world hope for a brighter future - turn off your lights and join us today!
Are you ready to create a sustainable future ?
Everyone loves delicious food, new clothes and gifts wrapped in splendid packaging. It may be hard to give these things up, but it’s even harder for the Earth to give us any more than it’s already giving us. Today, Hong Kong people consume 540 times more natural resources than the territory can provide*. Therefore, for Earth Hour 2015, we are asking everyone to change their lifestyles and give up some of these luxuries to help sustain the Earth.
Incredible changes start from small changes. Let’s start the process of change by consuming less, consuming wisely, and using clean energy which emits less carbon dioxide – and of course, by supporting Earth Hour!
We can create a more sustainable future with our own hands. Are you ready to join us?
