Started by WWF and partners in 2007, Earth Hour is now one of the worlds largest grassroots movements for the environment. Held every year on the last Saturday of March, Earth Hour encourages supporters in more than 190 countries to take action to ensure a brighter future for our environment by switching off all the lights for an hour.
Earth Hour has gone far beyond this and is now a catalyst for positive environmental impact, driving major legislation changes by harnessing the power of the people and collective action.
If you're taking part and you're not sure how you'll spend your Saturday evening this Earth Hour, then look no further. We have curated a list of things you can do after switching off your lights...
1. Cook with your family and friends!
Candle lit dinners aren't just for romantic valentine's day dinners. Dine in the dark with Earth Hour and cook up some delicious meals! Take it a step further and encourage yourself to cook up a meal where nothing is wasted and try to only buy ingredients with recyclable packaging!
2. Spend time with loved ones.
Enjoy a cosy night in and spend some time with those you love most. How about watching a movie or a documentary about the environment? Or, connect virtually with a friend you haven't seen in a while!
Awareness is the first step before taking action. Use the hour to learn more about our incredible environment, the challenges we face and what we need to do to turn things around.

How can we take care of our planet if we're not taking care of ourselves? Get your body moving this Earth Hour, your body AND the planet will thank you for it!
