Over the weekend, in another global display of support for action on climate change, thousands of buildings around the world went dark as part of Earth Hour 2019 The World Wildlife Fund has organized the event each year since 2007 to raise awareness, and since then it has taken off globally, with millions participating by turning off their lights for one hour.  This year, famous buildings and landmarks like Big Ben in London, the Sydney Opera House, and the World Trade Center have participated.  It is now the world’s largest grassroots demonstration for the environment.   The event is a reminder that every day everyone can do something to help decrease their carbon footprint.  In addition, you can click here to sign a pledge to decrease your environmental footprint and share your experiences on social media using the hashtags #Connect2Earth.    And you can check out all the inspiring @earthhour posts on twitter here.
