Dedhamites are fighting climate change.
The town is hosting Earth Hour on Saturday, March 23, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Dedham residents frustrated with climate change will turn off their lights, TVs, phones and computers for an hour to help protect the planet.
Earth Hour encourages individuals, businesses and governments to show leadership on environmental solutions through their actions. It asks everyone to take personal accountability for their impact on the planet and make behavioral changes to facilitate a sustainable lifestyle.
Taking the first step is as easy as turning off your lights. By switching off your lights for Earth Hour you are acknowledging and celebrating your commitment to do something more for the planet that goes beyond the hour.
Participating residents can post photos to green Dedham on Facebook. For more information visit www.earthhour.org.
