Earth Hour 2010 sweeps across the planet
Locally over 160 companies pledged their support. Based on the reduced electricity consumption during Earth Hour, ESKOM estimates that the equivalent of 1 million South African households participated. Consequently, we estimate that between 1 and 4 million South Africans participated in the event!
Earth Hour is so much more than just switching off your lights for sixty minutes. It has become the biggest mass movement of our time. This year we have urged people and companies to also pledge to reduce their carbon footprint.
