• we're "switching off" for earth hour

A strong devotion to the environment is inherent to us all as, being surfers, we are intrinsically connected to that which provides us with waves. This is why Billabong wholeheartedly supports Earth Hour.

On Saturday March 29th at 8:30pm, millions of people across the world are switching off their lights for one hour to raise the awareness of climate change and its effects on the world around us.

The global Earth Hour environmental movement originated in Sydney, Australia as a campaign for action on climate change six years ago. Since then it has grown to become the world’s largest mass-participation event in history. From 1 to over 7,000 cities… From 1 country to 7 continents… From 2-million to hundreds-of-millions of people.

Earth Hour's mission is three-fold:

1. To bring people together through a symbolic hour-long event.

2. To galvanise people into taking action beyond the hour.

3. To create an interconnected global community sharing the mutual goal of creating a sustainable future for the planet.

This year people around the globe are doing more than turning the lights off for 1 hour. Find out how your country is supporting Earth Hour at www.earthhour.org/earth-hour-around-world
