Muskoka officials invite you to join Earth Hour Saturday night
Flicking off that light switch for just an hour could make all the difference in the world.
Earth Hour runs once again tomorrow night and Muskoka officials are asking residents to consider joining in by turning off all your lights and electronics between eight and nine. Fire officials say, if you can, use flameless battery-operated candles to avoid any fire-related issues. If you are using real candles or a fireplace, make sure to check all your smoke alarms to make sure they’re working properly.
Municipalities across Muskoka will be turning off the lights in many town buildings to take part in the event.
Earth Hour is a global movement to bring more recognition for climate change and how we can all shrink our carbon footprints with the smallest of gestures like turning off the lights.
