Palace: Cut down on plastics use for Earth Hour

Participants in Earth Hour 2018 in front of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin Germany

Earth Hour started as a lights-out event in Sydney in 2007. Central Railway chief spokesperson Sunil Udasi said, "We observe Earth Hour every year". It has grown in stature over the years, as more than 180 countries and territories are now involved.

According to DawnNewsTV, lights were switched off in well-known landmarks all across Pakistan from 8:30pm to 9:30pm, including the National Assembly as well as the provincial assemblies. Supporters can sign a pledge to decrease their environmental footprint by taking part in the blackout, and share their experience on social media using the hashtags #Connect2Earth.

The Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Egypt's Great Pyramid, New York's Empire State Building, the Sydney Opera House, the Shanghai Tower and the Christ the Redeemer monument in Brazil were just some of the more-than 100 monuments to be thrown into darkness.

The last 12 months have seen some of the direst warnings on the impact of climate change on our natural habitat and species.

All around the globe, families, individuals, and big corporations are participating in Earth Hour - an initiative to switch off the lights for an hour at 20:30 local time.

"Earth Hour 2019 with its campaign '#Connect2Earth' aims to build mass awareness on why nature is important and create an unstoppable movement for nature similar to when the world came together to tackle climate change", reads the official statement issued by the organisers.

"Earth Hour provides an opportunity to unite millions of people in a common objective", May said.

Earth Hour is a global movement that encourages people to conserve power.

In Los Angeles, the iconic Pacific Wheel ferris wheel in Santa Monica will join worldwide landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and Big Ben and go dark for one hour.
