WWF Earth Hour 2013 is just around the corner. It’s never been more important to respect the planet and think about the way we live. Extreme weather changes like flooding or drought, food shortages and the loss of species and deforestation are just some of the issues we’re facing. HostelBookers.com supports WWF in all it’s projects and Earth Hour is the perfect way to show us travellers care about this wonderful planet too. So get yourself involved!
When is Earth Hour?

What is Earth Hour?
Hundreds of millions of people worldwide turn off their lights for one hour to show their allegiance and support in saving the earth’s resources and living greener. Earth Hour is a global phenomenon and more than 1.8billion people in 135 countries will be taking part.
This includes such landmarks as the Eiffel Tower, the Pyramids of Giza, Times Square and the Sydney Opera House.
