Look out for lights out – it’s Earth Hour 2019!
Some of Cardiff’s major landmark buildings will be turning out the lights this Saturday as part of WWF Earth Hour.

Cardiff Castle, City Hall, Cardiff Central Library, St David’s Hall, the New Theatre, the Norwegian Church and the Cardiff Story Museum will turn their external lights off and join hundreds of millions of individuals and businesses from more than 180 different countries and more than 7000 cities to mark Earth Hour from 8.30pm – 9.30pm on Saturday 30th March.

Cabinet Member for Clean Streets, Recycling & Environment, Cllr Michael Michael said: “Since the council first participated in Earth Hour 10 years ago we’ve taken some significant steps to reduce our impact on the environment.  We’ve harnessed the power of the River Taff to generate renewable electricity at Radyr Weir, installed LED street-lighting and recently trialled electric vehicles in the city centre - but we can all still do more.  I’d encourage as many people as possible to join us in marking Earth Hour this weekend.”

Big impacts start with small steps and this year, as well as turning out the lights for one hour, individuals and organisations are also being encouraged to change one thing to protect the planet.  Whether it’s planning a staycation, carrying a reusable water bottle or turning your washing down to 30 degrees, we all have the power to make a difference.
