Earth Hour for 2021 will commence on March 27th from 8:30 PM to 9:30 PM in each time zone. Sitting in the dark for an hour might not sound like a lot of fun at first, but it can be — especially with your awesome pooch to keep you company!

There are many ways we can do our part when it comes to helping the environment — simple things like recycling your cans and paper goods, volunteering to clean up your neighborhood, or even trying to conserve energy at home. If you’re environmentally conscious or just concerned about the planet, then you might have heard about Earth Hour.

In 2007, the WWF organization, also known as World Wildlife Fund and World Wide Fund for Nature, started a worldwide movement that encouraged businesses and communities alike to turn off their lights for one hour to promote awareness of conservation.

It’s a symbolic gesture that started in Sydney, Australia and now involves at least 7,000 cities in more than 100 countries. You can participate, too, and it’s a great time to turn off distractions, bond with your dog, and show commitment to helping the environment.

Here are four things you can do during Earth Hour with your dog.

Earth Hour is a great way to make a statement that you are committed to an eco-friendlier planet. It is also a great way to be one with nature and bond with your loving canine as well!
