Earth Hour is an international event that brings awareness to global climate change. March 29, 2014 will be the seventh annual Earth Hour. The simple act of turning off the power for one hour has united 15 million Canadians each year. If you are wondering what to do to help green Toronto this Earth Hour, we have put together a list of community events taking place across the city.
