Commemorate Earth Hour this year with Tree Time.
Earth Hour 2021
Earth Hour will be celebrated on March 27th of this year. Earth Hour is an hour where millions of people connect with others and switch off their lights to show that they care about the future of our planet. Earth Hour is celebrated every year to increase awareness and spark global conversations about protecting nature and combating climate change in order to ensure our health, happiness, prosperity and even survival on Earth.
Since starting in Sydney in 2007 Earth Hour has become a global moment each year when millions unite and over 188 countries participate around the world to show they care about the future of our planet. People around the world are encouraged to switch off their lights to draw attention to climate change. The climate crisis continues to worsen and is a massive threat as the rapid loss of biodiversity and nature continues.
Celebrate Earth with TreHour e Time. Join the millions of homes across the world that will switch off their non-essential lights for 1 hour on Saturday at 8.30pm.
Donate to Tree Time this Earth Hour
As well as switching off your lights this Earth Hour why not donate to Tree Time? Trees are one of the most powerful tools in helping fight climate change. We are currently in a climate crisis and since our CO2 emissions are continuing to rise and the human population is continuing to grow it’s even more important for us to act now. Planting more trees is one of the most immediate, powerful, and cost-effective solutions to tackling the climate crisis.
Trees are vital in helping to protect our environment. As trees grow they absorb and store C02 and then release oxygen back into the atmosphere. C02 is a major greenhouse gas that is responsible for the Earth’s rising temperature and climate change. Trees provide wildlife with homes, offer cooling shade during summer, block cold winter winds, purify our air, prevent soil erosion, clean our water, and provide beauty to local communities in Edinburgh.
It has been calculated that 6,500 trees need to be planted in Edinburgh every year to compensate for those that we lose and Tree Time Edinburgh aims to work with partners and raise funds to begin planting now. When trees are planted in your community they can help reduce climate change in Edinburgh and around the world.
Take the first step to help fight climate change by donating today.
