Local MP, Tom Brake, is joining millions around the world, in backing the environment and promoting the annual Earth Hour. This global ‘lights out’ event takes place on Saturday 19 March at 8.30pm.
Earth Hour is an annual event that brings together millions of people around the world to switch off their lights.
Tom said, “It is crucial that we work towards a sustainable future and make the environment a priority. I encourage residents of Carshalton and Wallington to turn off their lights or show their support for the future of this planet in any other way on the 19th at 8.30pm. Together we can protect the planet and ensure a healthier future for our families.”
Earth Hour, organised by WWF, is the world’s biggest celebration for our planet. In the UK last year, over 10 million people took part, along with over 4,800 schools, 200 landmarks and thousands of businesses and organisations. Iconic landmarks including Big Ben and Palace of Westminster, Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, Blackpool Tower, The Kelpies, Caerphilly Castle and many more joined the global lights out.
Everyone can join the celebration for WWF’s Earth Hour on Saturday 19 March 2016.For more information and to sign up please visit wwf.org.uk/earthhour
