In 2007, 2100 businesses in Sydney, Australia participated in the first Earth Hour. The following year, more than 50 million people in over 372 cities around the world joined the event. In 2012, Earth Hour set records with more than 6950 cities across 152 countries participating.
This year’s Earth Hour takes place on Saturday, March 23 from 8:30-9:30pm.
More than a world-wide collaboration to protect the environment, Earth Hour marks a special anniversary for Favor the Earth. During the 2009 Earth Hour, I was sharing pizza & beer at a local, organic pizzeria with friends when I declared I was opening my own business. Frustrated by my inability to find affordable eco-friendly gifts for my kids, their friends, teachers, and my friends, along with green supplies & treats all in one place…I decided I would be that place!
Less than six months later, our first website went live. We’ve grown a bit since then: delivering to 29 states, 7 countries, and 4 continents!
