Earth Hour and Earth Day are two occasions that have been marked by many hotel companies and individual hotels in years past. How will you be marking the occasions this year? This year, Earth Hour will be celebrated around the world on March 19 from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. local time. The World Wildlife Federation has created a video that summarizes 2015 Earth Hour activities. Be sure to check it out. Last year lighting at more than 10,400 landmarks and monuments was turned off during Earth Hour. Wyndham Worldwide participated in Earth Hour by turning its lights down and encouraging energy conservation. Hilton hotels participated with candlelit dinners with low carbon menus and sustainable cocktails. Guests of The Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii celebrated Earth Hour by enjoying complimentary ocean-side stargazing, compliments of Stargaze Hawaii. In years past MGM Resorts International has dimmed lights at its resorts. Exterior lighting, rooftop signage, marquees and front features at the company’s major Strip resorts and Beau Rivage Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Miss. were turned off during the celebration.
