DuPage Encourages Participation in Earth Hour

DuPage County officials encourage residents and businesses to participate in Earth Hour on Saturday, March 29, and to incorporate sustainable energy practices into their daily lives throughout the entire year.

The annual Earth Hour event, organized by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), encourages residents and businesses to turn off non-essential lights for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., in an effort to raise awareness about climate change. This initiative aligns with DuPage County’s goal to reduce energy consumption countywide via the Sierra Club’s Cool Counties initiative. The Cool Counties initiative aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality.
