Penn State EcoReps To Observe Earth Hour March 25

Penn State EcoReps will observe the annual Earth Hour on Saturday, March 25, in an effort to reduce electricity and promote a more sustainable community. EcoReps will light paper lanterns from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Old Main Lawn for its in-person observation of Earth Hour.

During this time, students are encouraged to join EcoReps at Old Main or reduce their own electricity consumption by turning off lights, unplugging appliances not in use, being more conscious of the energy they use, or participating in any activity that’s kind to the earth.

Earth Hour is an international event, first started in 2007 by the World Wildlife Fund in Sydney, Australia, with a lights-out ceremony. Now, millions of people worldwide celebrate Earth Hour and commit to sustainability on the last Saturday of March.

Students can take a pledge to turn off lights and other electronics and visit Penn State EcoReps’ website to learn more about Earth Hour.
