Make Earth Hour a success

HALTON HILLS, CA — Since 2008, our community has collaborated to make Earth HourTM a success by participating in this worldwide event by recognizing the need to take action against global warming. Turn off any unnecessary lights and reduce your energy consumption on March 31st, between 8:30pm and 9:30pm, 2012.  These practical actions will again demonstrate that it is possible to take meaningful local action against climate change. Building on our past successes, it is important that we take actions throughout the year to benefit the environment. 

I once again encourage the participation of our residents, businesses and community organizations. Participation in Earth Hour will help implement the Town’s Green Plan and continue to move all of us towards a more prosperous future with an even higher quality of life.

Since we haven’t received a lot of snow this year, it’s easy to see all of the litter that has collected on our streets and in our neighbourhoods over the winter.  Circle these dates on your calendar to help clean-up our beautiful town.
