Argyll and Bute MP, Brendan O’Hara, has added his voice for Earth Hour, the world’s largest annual event to protect the planet, and joined a movement to safeguard nature and to set it on the path to recovery.

Joining over 100 MPs in the House of Commons this week, Mr O’Hara made a pledge to the environment, ahead of the global lights out event on Saturday 30th March at 8:30 – 9:30pm.

Mr O’Hara said:

“We must do more to protect our environment we cannot sit back and watch the destruction of nature.

“Earth Hour gives a voice to people everywhere who want to raise awareness of some of the biggest environmental challenges that we as a planet are facing.

“Small changes in everyday life will help to protect our environment and I hope by adding my voice to this campaign, I can encourage my constituents in Argyll and Bute to do the same.”

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 to find solutions for the environmental challenges we face globally. The global lights out event involves switching off lights from 8:30 – 9:30pm as a visual display of commitment to the planet.
