Earth Hour 2012:
Earth Hour is a global movement uniting people to protect the planet. On the last Saturday of March every year, Earth Hour brings together communities from across the world celebrating a commitment to the planet by switching off lights for one designated hour.
Saturday, March 31 @ 8:30 PM
From its inception as a single-city initiative – Sydney, Australia - in 2007, Earth Hour has grown into a global symbol of hope and movement for change.
Will you turn off the lights tonight?

Etch A Sketch made recent news headlines when a campaign aide compared the toy with presidential candidate Mitt Romney's election strategy. The toy company has since responded to the controversial comment with its new "Shake it Up, America" campaign ads.
"Etch A Sketch is a lot like politics, there's a lot of gray area," reads one ad. "We have a left knob and a right knob for each political party. (But remember, when both work together, we can do loop de loops.)," reads another.
Well played, Ohio Art.

First place went to Staten Island's Goodfella's Brick Oven Pizza. Their award-winning "Tropical Pie" contains a blend of asiago and mozzarella cheese, shrimp, thinly sliced and twisted limes, fresh mango salsa, and a rich pineapple cream sauce infused with Patron tequila. The grand prize was $10,000.
