Councilwoman Judy Waldman is encouraging residents and businesses of the City of Homestead to support the World Wildlife Fund’s Earth Hour 2013 on March 23 at 8:30 pm.
“I am asking everyone to come together as a community and invite their friends and family to participate in this simple, yet effective way of showing our commitment to a sustainable planet,” said Councilwoman Waldman. “Let’s demonstrate that Homestead is part of a global community that seeks to reduce its environmental impact and support the use of renewable energy sources.”
Earth Hour is a global movement uniting people to protect the planet. Towards the end of March every year, Earth Hour brings together communities from across the world celebrating a commitment to the planet by switching off lights for one designated hour. Earth Hour encourages people to participate by turning off all non-essential lights and electronic equipments. Earth Hour 2013 will be held on Saturday, March 23 between 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm.

Councilwoman Waldman was approached by Homestead resident Elizabeth Melendez who told her about the millions of people who will turn off their lights for one hour, on the same night, all across the world in a symbolic show of support for a better planet.
