For the 11th year, people around the world are encouraged to shut off their lights for 60 minutes at 8:30p.m. local time for the annual Earth Hour celebration. Last year, nearly 18,000 landmarks switched out their lights as well as many individuals across the planet.
The Dakota Horizons Girl Scouts are joining in on the efforts to take action against climate change. Along with a blackout dance party, the girls learned about what they can do to help.
“There’s actually four “R”s instead of three: reduce, reuse, recycle and renew,” says Keeley Brown, Brownie Scout.
“And we learned how and why we do those things and we are creating our own recycling bin,” says Isabela Curtis, Brownie Scout.
To join in on Earth Hour, all you have to do is turn off the lights.
