Epping Forest MP Dame Eleanor Laing has added her voice for Earth Hour, the world’s largest annual event to protect the planet, and joined a movement to safeguard nature and set it on the path to recovery.

Dame Eleanor made a pledge for the environment; joining more than 100 MPs who showed their support for Earth Hour in Parliament this week, ahead of the global lights out event on Saturday, March 30 (8.30pm).

MPs pledged their #VoiceForThePlanet to send the message that it is unacceptable to sit back and watch the destruction of nature, and to help inspire their constituents to make their voice heard this Earth Hour, by choosing to change something in everyday life that will help protect our planet.  

In the UK, every year millions of people take part in Earth Hour, joining hundreds of millions more around the globe. 

Earth Hour has helped us find solutions for the environmental challenges we face globally. This includes influencing national climate policies, planting new forests in Uganda, and banning plastic in the Galapagos.

The world’s biggest landmarks – such as the Sydney Opera House, Empire State Building, Eiffel Tower, Buckingham Palace, and Edinburgh Castle - switch off lights as a visual display of their commitment to our planet.

Dame Eleanor said: “Earth Hour gives a voice to people everywhere who want to raise awareness of some of the biggest environmental challenges we are facing. I hope that by adding my voice for the planet I can encourage my constituents to do the same.”
