What are you doing for Earth Hour? Saturday night at 8:30pm...

On March 28, lights around the world will be turned off as over 2,700 cities representing 83 countries celebrate EARTH HOUR 2009. It is estimated that over 1 billion people worldwide will participate in this global initiative organized by World Wildlife Fund International. That evening, from 8 pm to 9 pm, homes and businesses around the world, including TREB, will turn out their lights in a symbolic gesture to combat climate change.

Amazing how far it has come in just 3 years. What an incredible effort around the world.

Imagine these Landmarks that will go dark this year:
