Get involved with #EarthHour, the biggest hour for the earth, on the 23rd of March 2024, with 60 recommendations from Planet Mark.

Earth Hour

Each year, on the last Saturday of March millions of people across the world unite for EarthHour. It’s a reminder that even the smallest efforts can lead to significant change for our world.

Since its inception in 2007, #EarthHour has become famous for its iconic “lights off” moment, when individuals and businesses turn off their lights at 8:30 in their local time for one hour to raise awareness of the climate crisis and demonstrate their commitment to the earth.

In these crucial times for our planet, we join them in encouraging everyone to not only switch off their lights but also spend an hour doing something beneficial for the Earth so we can turn a single Earth Hour into thousands and millions of hours of action for our one shared home.

Here are 60 ways you can give an hour for Earth this year:

  1. Switch to renewable energy
