Lights OFF... Glow Sticks ON!

We are 125 hours away (and counting!) from Earth Hour 2012. Genius has struck here at HI-Chicago…and a Glow Stick Party is in the works for when we shut off all the lights at 8.30pm on March 31st. Earth Hour is the world’s largest public environmental action, and by taking part in this global ‘lights out’ event HI-Chicago will be acknowledging its commitment to operational actions that benefit the planet in the year ahead.

Last year some of the world’s most famous man-made marvels and natural wonders, including China’s Forbidden City, Eiffel Tower, Table Mountain, Great Pyramids of Egypt, Buckingham Palace, Brazil’s Christ the Redeemer statue, Niagara and Victoria Falls, Empire State Building, Sydney Opera House and many more global icons stood in darkness as a powerful symbol of landmark environmental action.


Join us this Saturday night to celebrate saving electrical energy and expending energy of our own while having a glow-stick-induced fun time! Glow sticks and snacks are free!

To get a better sense of the magnitude and inspiring nature of the event, take a moment to watch the Earth Hour 2012 official video at .
