Las Vegas Casinos to Celebrate Earth Hour 2013

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS - It's lights out for the Las Vegas Strip this weekend, but only for an hour. Saturday evening, many of the lights along the Strip will dim or go dark in honor of Earth Hour 2013.

This marks the seventh year for Earth Hour. Several people think Earth Hour represents a statement about saving energy, but the message is much larger. It's about saving the planet.

Earth Hour is a global movement intended to raise awareness of the dangers of mankind's environmentally unfriendly habits and to promote habits that lead to a sustainable environment.

Las Vegas is participating by dimming the lights on hotel-casinos on the Strip and turning them off in some neighborhoods around the valley.

Whether you are reducing your carbon footprint by using less energy, recycling more or helping to replenish rain forests by purchasing environmentally-friendly products, the message is to challenge others to do something to help save the planet.

You can accept the challenge to turn off your lights Saturday night at 8:30 p.m. in support of Earth Hour and turn on your ideas to help the environment in the hours, weeks and years to come.
