Earth Hour 2015 is this Saturday night from 8:30 to 9:30pm and South Jersey plans to join in the celebration!

Earth Hour is a worldwide movement for the planet organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature. The event is held worldwide annually encouraging individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30pm this Saturday, March 28th, as a symbol for their commitment to the planet.

Since the first Earth Hour in 2007, it has grown to engage more than 7000 cities and towns worldwide. Today, Earth Hour engages a massive mainstream community on a broad range of environmental issues.

In businesses and at home, many in South Jersey plan to participate in this symbolic lights-out event.

The Caesars Atlantic City properties, Caesars, Bally's and Harrah's will dim their lights for an hour and Ventnor Coffee, Lucy the Elephant, and even the Longport smiley-faced water tower are all planning to go dark for the cause.

To be a part of Earth Hour, just turn off any non-essential lighting for the hour this Saturday from 8:30 to 9:30pm and conserve energy any way you can!
