Earth Hour is Saturday, 28 March 2015 at 8:30 pm in your local time zone

Every year on the last Saturday of March, millions of people turn off their lights for one hour to celebrate their commitment to protecting the environment.  Check out the official and very cool Earth Hour video here  to see why people around the world are committed to Earth Hour.

Would you like to attend the world's biggest candle-lit dinner, or party in the darkness?  If so, the Earth Hour events are for you!  Go camping, stargaze, talk to neighbors, play board games, have a concert – the possibilities are endless.  Join the nearest Earth Hour event or simply have fun at home by turning off all non-essential lights on:

Saturday March 28, 2015, 8:30 – 9:30 pm your local time!

“Earth Hour is just one moment in time – but it is a reflection of a commitment to reduce our impact on the environment throughout the year.  Earth Hour is simply a celebration of this commitment,” said Lisa Morden, Sr. Director of Sustainability. “So, use your power and turn off your lights!  Not only will you help to reduce climate changing emissions, you might enjoy some “unplugged” time with family and friends!”   

There are many fun and easy ways to express your support for Earth Hour:

  • Tweet #EarthHour and connect to conversations around the globe working to make a difference in climate change
  • Turn off lights after hours in offices
  • Minimize printing and photocopying
  • Turn off printers, computers, monitors, microwaves and coffee machines at the power points at the end of the day when unused for long periods

And don’t forget that K-C has also made a commitment to reduce our impact.  Our operations around the world have been working to reduce climate change emissions for many years and the journey must continue.
