Quality Information and Connections in the Field of Sustainable Lodging

Earth Hour began in 2007 in Sydney, Australia as a way to raise awareness about sustainability and show support for climate change action.  That first year 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change.  By 2011, it was a global event and participation reached hundreds of millions of people in 5,200 cities and towns across 135 countries.  Earth Hour 2012 will be held on March 31st from 8:30-9:30 PM.  Many hotels and other businesses across the country will be turning off non-essential lighting for this one hour – will you?
