Where are you celebrating Earth Hour? Show your care for the Earth this Saturday, March 30, from 8:30 to 9:30 pm. Now in its 12th year, the annual global initiative — recognized as “the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment” — sees millions of individuals and businesses turning off their non-essential electric lights for one hour, to raise awareness about energy consumption and its impact on the planet. #CONNECT2EARTH
