Lights Out For Duluth’s Aerial Lift Bridge During Earth Hour
If you've never stopped to appreciate the beauty of our gorgeous bridge landmarks, you should. Not just the Aerial Lift Bridge, but the Richard I. Bong too. Not only during the day, but all lit up at night, it's beautiful and I'm sure a delight for our tourists. However, to go globally green, we need to turn the lights off and that's exactly what will happen during Earth Hour. Here's a definition of Earth Hour.
Duluth will participate along with millions around the world on Saturday March 31, starting at 8:30 pm to commemorate Earth Hour. For one hour, the lights on the Lift Bridge will be turned off as a demonstration of our support and commitment for sustainable practices to protect the environment and precious natural resources.
The public is encouraged to participate in this annualglobal event.
About Earth Hour
Earth Hour is a global environmental initiative in partnership with WWF and Leo Burnett. Individuals, businesses, governments and communities are invited to turn out their lights for one hour on Saturday March 31, 2012 at 8:30 PM to show their support for environmentally sustainable action. In 2012, Earth Hour’s I Will If You Will concept invites individuals and organizations to challenge others to an ongoing environmental commitment beyond the hour.
Earth Hour began in one city in 2007 and by 2011 reached over 1.8 billion people in 135 countries across every continent, receiving reports as ‘the World’s largest campaign for the planet’.
