Ready to help save the planet? Then turn off those lights!

The seventh annual Earth Hour will take place Saturday, March 23 at 8:30PM (local time) in an effort to raise awareness for our planet’s climate change. Participants of this global event promise to turn off their lights for an hour, making a commitment to create a more sustainable Earth.

But Earth Hour is more than just 60 minutes in the dark. This event is the “single, largest, mass participation event in the world” and has garnered support from over 150 countries. Plus, everyone—from corporations to individuals—is getting involved. For more information, read about  Earth Hour’s “I Will If You Will” campaign, or click here.

Will you be participating in Earth Hour this year? How else can we help protect our planet? Sound off in the comments section below, or tweet us at @KIWIMagazine. Then, check out a few pictures from previous Earth Hours, below!
