EARTH HOUR 2020

Earth Hour is one of the largest grassroot movements for the Environment, with millions of people from over 180 countries participating. 

Each year we join together around the world and switch off the lights as a symbol of unity, hope and power in collective actions and to show the world that YOU care about the future of our planet. 

This year’s Earth Hour will take place on Saturday, 28 March from 8.30 – 9.30 pm. We urge you to #StayHome and join us in the celebration by switching off your lights!

Here are some other tips on what you can do throughout the year to help the environment:

  • Check for leaky faucets
  • Set your a/c to 24 degrees
  • Use reusable water bottles 
  • Switch to e-billing 
  • Switch off the lights when leaving a room
  • Unplug electronic devices when not in use
  • Replace your incandescent lightbulbs with compact fluorescent ones
