Urging his constituents to join in Neil Bibby MSP said: "It was great to meet WWF at the Scottish Parliament recently to hear about the actions everyone can take to live in a more sustainable way and protect the planet".

When asked if Earth Hour connects with Carrboro's values, Zucchino said that if there's one place in the whole state he would predict an event like this to occur, it would be Chapel Hill and Carrboro.

Debbie Levin, president of the Environmental Media Association, spoke to Teen Vogue about Earth Day and encouraged everyone to get involved, because we always need more people to help fight climate change.

So after the lights go back on think about what else you can do to make a difference.
