Turn Off the Lights for Earth Hour

You know that turning off your lights saves energy and money. This Saturday night turning out the lights can also make a statement. People all over the world are being asked by the World Wildlife Fund to turn off their lights on March 29th at 8:00 p.m.

Earth Hour was created by WWF in Sydney, Australia in 2007, and in one year has grown from an event in one city to a global movement. About two million Sydney residents turned off their lights to reduced carbon emissions by 25 tonnes.

I know. I know. I’ve been a bit over the top with the YouTube videos this week, but this one offers the facts about this event.

So far 250954 people have registered for Earth Hour 2008.Naturally bunches of celebs are also behind the effort. You can still add your name. There are also lots of Colorado companies, here are some:
