If the Eiffel Tower and the Golden Gate Bridge both decided to turn off their lights, would you do it too? Of course you would! Because you’re a good person and Saturday, March 26th is Earth Hour.

What does that mean? Well, if you’re a good little eco-activist then at 8:30 p.m. (your local time) you will commit to switching the lights off for one hour. It’s estimated that 90 million people and more than 2,000 businesses participate every year in Earth Hour to take a stand against climate change.

The World Wildlife Federation has been promoting the event since 2008 to raise awareness to greenhouse gas emissions and various other environmental issues. Obviously, important things like traffic lights will remain on, but it is indeed true the the Golden Gate Bridge and the Eiffel Tower in Paris will dim their lights for the hour.

Check out photos from Earth Hour last year, and the official Earth Hour video below!
