REBECCA Evans AM, Assembly Member for Gower, has pledged her support for WWF’s Earth Hour campaign 2018 – the global movement to protect our planet.
Every year, millions of people across the world show their love for our
planet and their commitment to protecting it by taking part in WWF’s
Earth Hour by turning their lights off.
Last year in Wales, an estimated 280,000 took part in WWF’s Earth Hour,
as did every single local authority in the country. Iconic Welsh landmarks all went dark.
As part of this year’s Earth Hour campaign, Rebecca Evans AM, has backed WWF Cymru’s calls for everyone in Wales to make small changes in their everyday lives to live more sustainably – a ‘Promise for the Planet’. Refusing plastic cutlery, using a reusable coffee cup, or turning the
washing to 30°C are small actions as individuals, but have a much bigger impact together.
Mrs Evans said: “I’m delighted to pledge my support for WWF’s Earth Hour campaign again this year.
“We know that climate change is one of the biggest threats facing us – but if individuals take small steps to live more sustainably, together we can make a difference.
“I’m encouraging everyone in Gower to make a Promise for the Planet and support Earth Hour on the night by switching off at 8.30pm on Saturday 24 March .”
