Earth Hour, an initiative of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), is observed annually on the last Saturday of the month of March. This year, the event will be commemorated on March 27. It urges individuals, businesses, and governments across the world to switch off their non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour at 8:30 pm (local time), with the aim to raise awareness towards the need to protect nature for building a sustainable future for all.
Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati has taken to Twitter to call to stop, unplug, disconnect and pledge to observe every minute and moment in the service of the planet. "Tonight as worldwide we #switchoff for #EarthHour let’s heed the call of #MotherEarth to just stop, unplug, disconnect & pledge to observe every minute & moment in the service of the #planet", she tweeted.
