Rincon Hill Neighbors Get Ready for Earth Hour San Francisco

Barry at the Dept. of the Environment asked me to share this info. with y’all …
Earth Hour is a global event – turning off as many non-essential lights as possible on March 28, from 8:30 to 9:30 pm (local time, so that it’s dark in each participating community.) In San Francisco, more than 150 large downtown hotels and commercial buildings are committed to participating, as
well as landmarks such as the Bay Bridge and Golden Gate Bridge.
Why? To bring attention to climate change, visually demonstrate our profound power to collaborate to save energy, save money, and even conserve wildlife. San Francisco is one of more than 1400 cities around the world celebrating Earth Hour 2009 with events, parties, and – most importantly – collaborating to turn out the lights.
What can you do to help?
Has your building manager or owner contacted you to tell you about Earth Hour? If they haven’t, they may not have signed up for the event yet. Make sure your building managers or owners have signed up for Earth Hour, and will be turning off the lights at 8.30 pm, local time, on Saturday, March 28. Although they should already have received information on how to sign up, they can sign up here:
Turn out the lights at home on Saturday March 28, from 8:30pm to 9:30 pm!
Participate in Earth Hour to Hour – events around the city througout the day, and festivities to enjoy citywide mood lighting together during Earth Hour.
The Take 5 Pledge – Sign up to do 5 things, 5 simple things, beyond Earth Hour.
Kids Activities – Yep, kids can be part of Earth Hour too!
