Earth Hour -

March 24, 2018, 8:30 - 9:30pm

Every year, millions of people around the world join the Earth Hour movement and switch off their lights for one hour to show support for protecting our planet and stopping climate change. This year,
Earth Hour is at 8:30pm your local time on Saturday, March 24.

Earth Hour 2018 comes at a critical moment in the fight against climate change. After the United States announced its intent to withdraw from the Paris Agreement-the world's first truly global plan to address climate change-more than 2,500 leaders across America's state houses, city halls, board rooms, faith organizations, and college campuses stepped up to say they are still committed to meeting America's climate goals. Now it's your turn. We know that it will take action from everyone-from governments and businesses to communities and individuals-to urgently reduce the emissions that drive climate change and prepare for the inevitable impacts of a warming planet, some of which we're already experiencing.
Show your commitment to the planet this Earth Hour. On March 24, join the world in an historic lights-out display by turning off all non-essential lights at 8:30pm your local time and recommit to the fight against climate change. Together, we can tackle climate change and create a future where people and nature thrive.

Recycle Mattresses at Ikea 

Each year, an estimated 15 to 20 million mattresses and box springs are disposed of in the U.S., according to the Mattress Recycling Council. Each day, 50,000 mattresses end up in landfills or are illegally dumped. Due to their size, mattresses take up lots of valuable landfill space and are difficult to compress. This new national program is part of IKEA's People and Planet Positive Sustainability strategy that was launched in October 2012. It shows a commitment to make mattresses easier for consumers to recycle.
