Earth Hour 2013 - turn off in Richmond Hill
Earth Hour 2013 - turn off in Richmond Hill

It starts with turning lights out for an hour. Maybe we could do more. How much less energy could we use?

In Richmond Hill residents reduced consumption by 8.2 percent, saving enough energy to power 330 homes for 24 hours.

Plan ahead.  But be very cautious with candles.

This is a World Wildlife Foundation initiative.  see their web site www.earthhour.wwf.ca/earthhour

Please note that Town's Waste Management Calendar has this year's Earth Hour to be on March 30th not Mary 23rd.
