How to Celebrate Earth Hour 2014 This Weekend

Will your town go dark this Saturday, March 29?

Millions of people across the world are expected to turn off their lights for an hour this weekend in celebration of Earth Hour.

The annual event, which is organized by the World Wildlife Fund, aims to engage "a massive mainstream community on a broad range of environmental issues."

It encourages residents and businesses to shut off the lights for one hour, from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. local time this Saturday, March 29. 

How to Participate

Easy: turn off the lights for an hour! But that's not it—here are other ways to get involved. 

And here's how you do it in Santa Monica:

Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier joins Earth Hour in its “Use Your Power” mantra with a one-hour, lights-out on the world-famous Ferris wheel, except for the wheel rim safety lighting, at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 29.

“Pacific Park works hard to be a leader in our industry and community for green initiatives and sustainability. We look forward to participating each year in Earth Hour to help underscore our commitment to the environment,” Jeff Klocke, vice president of Marketing and Administration at Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier.

“In addition to the world’s only solar-powered Ferris wheel with energy-efficient LED lights, Pacific Park has replaced all light fixtures, provides employees with reusable bottles and mugs instead of bottled water and uses environmentally friendly cleaning products throughout the Park.”
