At 8.30pm this Saturday it is global earth hour, where people all over the world will be turning off their lights and pledging their support for the planet. This won't be a problem at all for Delia, who told us some time ago how she's helping tackle climate change. Please take care if trying this at home though, Delia does eat a lot of carrots. It's probably also best to keep your eyes open.
Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off to take a stand against climate change. Earth Hour 2010 was the biggest yet, with a record 128 countries and territories joining in the global display of climate action.
This year's Earth Hour takes place on Saturday 26 March at 8.30PM (local time), and as well as being the perfect opportunity to finally do that moonlit treasure hunt/ghost story marathon/sponsored silence in the dark* you've been planning, it's a chance to think about what else you can do to make a difference once the lights are back on.
So get involved, switch off the lights and anything else you can do without for the hour (hair straighteners included) and get ready for some good clean wholesome (and potentially candlelit) fun.
*any other suggestions for how to spend the time will be gratefully received, we're really struggling.
