Earth Hour is being celebrated around the world on Saturday 24 March, 8:30pm-9:30pm local time.
Starting as a symbolic lights out event in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour is now the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment, inspiring millions of people to take action for our planet and nature.
From pushing for environmentally-friendly laws and policies to crowdfunding for a better future, YOU make Earth Hour possible. Coordinated by WWF and other volunteer organisations, Earth Hour’s greatest strength is the power of people.
As accelerating climate change and staggering biodiversity loss threaten our planet, Earth Hour 2018-2020 endeavours to spark never-before-had conversations on the loss of nature and the urgent need to protect it.
The variety of life and places where they live is our best defence against climate change! Such variety provides us with even more resources to improve our lives.

Have you thought about switching your energy provider, but not found the time to do it?
Come to one of our drop in sessions in March 2018 (see below for dates and venues), and we’ll help you find your options there and then, using an impartial tool.
You’ll need to bring this information with you :
- The name of your supplier and the tariff you are on
- How much energy you used in the last year
- How you currently pay for your energy
- Your postcode
This information is on your bill and annual statement from your energy supplier – ring us if you’re not sure how to find it.
If you are on a pre-payment meter, you may not save as much by switching , but it may still be worth your while coming to the drop in.
If you’re not sure whether the drop in is for you , or want to know more please contact Liz Broadley on 07852 173723 or email Liz.firstname.lastname@example.org

Where does the metal you recycle end up? Calderdale Council‘s latest Metal Matters campaign explains it all – it could end up as electrical goods, a bus, a plane – the possibilities are endless. Metal can be recycled again and again. Did you know if you put two extra cans in your white sack you will save enough energy to run a computer for up to 12 hours. Also, you can now recycle clean foil and empty aerosols in your white sack. Look out in the post for your leaflet or find out more on the Council website. Make your metal matter!
