WBU Supports EARTH HOUR

Wild Birds Unlimited joins the growing list of supporting businesses that are committing to take a stand by turning the lights out on pollution and creating a cleaner, safer and more secure future.

Earth Hour, which takes place Saturday, March 27th at 8:30 p.m. local time, is an event in which millions of Americans will turn out their lights for one hour in support of action on climate change and toward creating a cleaner, safer and more secure future.

This year marks the third year of the event, which attracted an estimated 80 million participants in the U.S. last year, and nearly a billion people around the world, as lights dimmed on such global icons as the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Sydney’s Opera House, the Great Pyramids of Gaza and New York’s Empire State Building.

“The significance of Earth Hour is that it demonstrates that by both working together and also taking personal responsibility for turning off lights, unplugging electrical items and making our homes more energy efficient, each of us can make a positive difference,” said Mary Wenzel, director of Environmental Affairs at Wells Fargo.

We’d like to encourage you to join us in this important effort. Participation is free and easy:

  • Sign up at EarthHour.org- Show your support, find out what Earth Hour events are happening near you and get tips on organizing fun events in your community.
  • Spread the Word- Invite your friends and family to join the movement, become a fan on Facebook and post a link to EarthHour.org on your profile page.
  • Turn off the Lights- Turn off your non-essential lighting at 8:30 p.m. local time on Saturday, March 27.
