Here at Water-to-Go we’re helping to build a brighter future by supporting WWF’s Earth Hour, a spectacular and symbolic lights out event that focuses the world’s attention on our planet, and the need to protect it.
On March 29, at 8.30pm, we’ll be joining forces with thousands of businesses globally, as we show our support for our brilliant world. Earth Hour’s unique display of darkness has become a global phenomenon with hundreds of millions of individuals coming together each year. 2013 saw a record-breaking 157 countries switch-off for the world’s biggest celebration under the stars.
Last year in the UK over 10 million people took part, sending out a united and symbolic message. 280 of the country’s most iconic landmarks including the London Eye and Big Ben joined forces with more than 1,200 businesses such as Sky, Paramount and IKEA to ensure hundreds of buildings switched off.
To celebrate Earth Hour 2014, we will be switching off all non-essential lights in all Water-to-Go buildings including the offices, warehouse and factory at 8.30pm on 29th March for the hour and encouraging our employees to do the same at home.
‘We are proud to take part in Earth Hour and our employees are excited to be involved with such a great and inspiring event. Everyone can make a difference to help protect our planet and we all have a key role to play,’ said Water-to-Go’s Managing Director, Dave Shanks.
Shareen Brown, spokesperson for WWF-UK, said, “We’re thrilled that Water-to-Go will be taking part in Earth Hour this year and hope that they’ll inspire many others to get involved. Earth Hour is more than just an hour of darkness, it’s a chance for people to come together and send a global message about the need to protect our planet. It’s great to see so many businesses taking part and demonstrating their commitment to our planet. By taking one simple step to switch off, you’ll be joining millions of people from around the world in this special celebration.”
All of the money raised will go towards WWF’s vital conservation work in the Mara, Kenya, one of the most spectacular places on Earth and home to some of the world’s most iconic wildlife including lions, cheetahs and African elephants. This incredible landscape is also central to national and local economies and directly supports the livelihoods of more than one million people. WWF is helping to create a brighter future for the Mara, from helping communities address human-wildlife conflict to providing local wildlife rangers with much needed equipment and training.
