Join the City of Brampton by switching off your lights on Saturday, March 25 from 8:30 to 9:30 pm to send a message that you care about protecting our environment.
The City will join millions of individuals, businesses and governments around the world by turning off all non-essential lights for Earth Hour, as part of the World Wildlife Foundation's global environmental awareness campaign.
All non-essential lighting at municipal facilities will be shut off during Earth Hour. Lighting affecting public safety, security or service - such as streetlights, stoplights, park pathway lighting and parking lot lights at City facilities - will remain on.
Everyone is encouraged to participate. Spend some quality time with family and friends or do some stargazing. Remember to be extra careful if you're using candles! Use this time to go beyond the hour and consider steps you can take to save energy and reduce your carbon footprint all year round. [more...]
