Earth Hour – April 22 at 8:30 p.m.
The World Wide Fund for Nature will host Earth Hour again this year from 8:30-9:30 p.m. local time. It’s a great chance to take an hour off from your usual routine. Go stargazing with friends, or have game night by candlelight for something different and fun. Whatever trick you use, join the lights-off hour and turn off non-essential lights as a symbol of your commitment to our planet.
Recycle – Don’t toss your old bulbs in the trash!
Be sure to recycle your light bulbs and compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs) to keep harmful chemicals, such as mercury found in CFLs, out of our soil and water. There are several easy recycling solutions available. Learn more here.
