Earth Hour 2010: The City Turns Off Its Lights for One Hour | SF
>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Join environmentally conscious people all over the globe by turning off your lights for one hour on Saturday night and instead light candles. Dozens of buildings, monuments (including the Golden Gate Bridge) will be turning off their non-essential lighting at 8:30pm on Saturday March 27, 2010.
Going beyond just turning off the lights, you can participate by going Beyond The Hour and pledging publicly to do something that is good for the environment or healthy for the planet. It can be something large or small. For example, someone in Berkeley pledged to “own only what I need, not what I want” while a guy in SF pledged to “pee in the shower once a day instead of using the toilet.” Once you’ve pledged you can publicize it on Facebook or Tweeter.
