Giving back to the planet is easier than you think. Earth hour, coming up this month, is just the way to do it.

Earth hour is held all around the world by 400 cities and 35 nations around the planet. Go green for an hour on March 28th from 8:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. by turning off your lights to show your care for the Earth.

The point is to illustrate a change toward the wastefulness of our power usage and make a minute climate change.

Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert gave his support for this movement at the City Council meeting on Wednesday.

According to the Dallas Morning News, Leppert said, “You don’t want to have your building be the one that is shining as an energy consumer.”
