The Powerful Reason Famous Landmarks Are Turning Off Their Lights

Reader's Digest Logo By Morgan Cutolo of Reader's Digest | Slide 1 of 8: Every year, millions of people from different businesses, cities, and universities participate in Earth Hour. The lights are turned off for 60 minutes to help the planet combat climate change. The World Wildlife Fund puts on this environmentally friendly event, and it’s very easy to participate. Even though turning off all of the lights and electronics in your home for an hour won’t have quite the same effect as turning off all of the lights on the Golden Gate Bridge, every little bit helps. These are the famous landmarks that are participating. (These iconic American landmarks almost never came to be.)
