Switch off tomorrow morning and help conserve the planet’s energy.

That’s the message from Don Valley MP and Shadow Secretary of State for Energy & Climate Change, Caroline Flint, who is backing Earth Hour, which takes place tomorrow (Saturday March 29) at 8.30am.

Earth Hour is a WWF Campaign to highlight the amount of energy we consume and the long term impact on the planet.

Said Caroline: “Earth Hour reminds us that it is not just the cost of energy to consumers that matters, there is a cost to our planet as well. Earth Hour reminds us to conserve energy, and we can all play a part this Saturday. The big switch-off takes place at 8.30pm. When we do this, we will act at the same as millions of people, to highlight how brilliant our planet is, and then need to protect it.”

The theme this year is #bebrilliant

Earth Hour is the world’s biggest celebration for an amazing planet. WWF believe that Hundreds of millions of people from across the world will be coming together in a symbolic and spectacular light outs display.

It’s a brilliant reminder that together we can make change happen, and it gives us a chance to think about the small things we can do everyday to help create a brighter future. So whether you reflect under the stars or celebrate by candlelight, it’s a moment to say you’ll do your bit to protect our planet – not just for one hour, but every day.

Because turning out the lights is just the beginning….
