Earth Hour started five years ago March 31, 2007 in Sydney Australia to look at new ways to take climate change seriously and find alternative solutions and sustainable energy sources. 2.2 millions Australians and 2,100 businesses participated in the event. The following year, plans to make Earth Hour as Sydney’s national event became an international interest amid support for more than 100 millions of people across the globe in more than 5 thousand cities and 135 countries.  Since then Earth Hour became an annual global event that held every last Saturday of March. This year commemorated the exact date of its inauguration five years ago with a new theme “I Will If You Will” to showcase how everyone  has the power to change the world we live in through social media like You tube, Facebook, Twitter, Google +1, and other. The task is simple, head to You Tube or other social media and tell us what are you willing to do to save the planet.
