Lights out. Do it for our planet!

Join us for the world’s biggest celebration for our amazing planet! Simply add you name and switch off your lights for an hour on Saturday 19th March 2016 between 8.30pm and 9.30pm to show you care about the future of our planet.

The lights out really is just the beginning. At its heart, Earth Hour is a community of people who are sharing their love for our planet and taking action to protect it every day. Because together we can make change happen…


In the UK alone, we’re consuming three times our fair share of the planet’s natural resources, and we’re facing the biggest environmental challenge our generation has ever seen – climate change. It’s real, it’s happening now and it’s affecting the things we all love, but the good news is that we can make a difference.

Celebrate with a special candlelit dinner

Earth Hour is all about people coming together to celebrate our brilliant world. So why not enjoy an evening with your family and friends with a candlelit dinner that you know is good for you and for the planet too?

With celebrity chefs including Valentine Warner and Rachel de Thample on-board, you should have all the inspiration you need to cook up a treat! We have some fantastic Earth Hour recipes or have a go at creating your own sustainable tasty dishes based on WWF’s 6 Livewell principes.
