Boston residents and organization are working hard to ensure Boston reaches its ambitious sustainability goals and our community-wide efforts should be celebrated. What better way to celebrate and signify our commitment to protecting the planet than with a global act of solidarity?

On Saturday, March 28th at 8:30 PM, join hundreds of millions of people around the globe and turn off your non-essential lights for one hour to display a commitment to protect the planet. Last year, Earth Hour was observed in over 162 countries and territories and over 7,000 cities and towns, growing into the world’s largest environmental grassroots movement.

We’re calling on Boston businesses, community organizations, and residents to take action for Earth Hour.


InterContintental Boston is one business that is stepping up to plate. For the past four years, it has encouraged guests to turn off their lights, but this year, the hotel will also offer candle-lit dinner specials and spa treatments using organic,ECOCERT-certified products. What is your business doing to celebrate Earth Hour?

You can also celebrate Earth Hour from the comfort of your own home. Enjoy a candle-lit evening with friends and host a dinner or musical jam session. Community organizations can get involved by hosting activities to spread awareness of the movement in their neighborhoods.

How will you spend #EarthHourBos?

Make sure to spread the love of the planet and share your story to inspire others. Tell us what you or your organization plans to do for March 28th (and beyond!). If you spot the lights off at one of your favorite Boston landmarks, share it with us! Email your pictures and stories to info@greenovateboston.org or tweet@GreenovateBos with #EarthHourBos.
