earthGet involved in the Earth Hour movement! Turn off your lights for one hour on Saturday, March 27th, from 8:30 to 9:30 pm local time.  Click here to say you’ll be a part of this effort and join hundreds of millions of people around the world who have pledged to save energy.  The savings of just one hour shows how our individual efforts become powerful and significant when we all work together.

Last year lights were turned off on the Empire State Building, all New York Broadway theater marquees, the Las Vegas Strip, the Golden Gate Bridge, St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City, London’s Big Ben, and other important landmarks around the world.

For us at Lion Brand, there is even more of a point to be made.  Knitting and crocheting are relaxing activities that do not require technology.  We have a way to spend our time in a valuable and creative way when we step back from our computers, televisions and phones.  Use a candle and enjoy a taste of days gone by this Saturday night while being a part of an important movement.
