Earth Hour 2021 to take place tonight at 8:30pm ET
Westchester County is encouraging residents to take part in Earth Hour tonight at 8:30 pm. Earth Hour is a grassroots environmental initiative started in 2007 by the WWF and partners. The annual event encourages people around the world to turn off their lights for one hour in support of the planet.
Due to the pandemic, this year's Earth Hour will have a strong online component. Organizers plan to release a video to drive awareness and are asking participants to use the hashtag #VoiceforNature to share the video across their social media channels.
