Harrods Takes Part In Earth Hour
Imagine the iconic Harrods storefront in complete darkness, without its trademark sparkling lights offsetting Brompton Road with that ever-recognisable glow. Our famous Knightsbridge store will be turning off its exterior lights for one hour on Saturday 19th March 2016 at 8:30pm in aid of Earth Hour, an event created by the WWF (World Wildlife Fund) that takes place each year in order to raise awareness of climate change. Other major London landmarks are set to plunge into darkness and although a lot of energy is saved during the hour, the main purpose of the event is to put a spotlight on the issues facing the planet, and to inspire us all to live more sustainably.
Usually illuminated by 7,000 10-watt Xenon lamps - some of the best energy-saving types available - the Harrods storefront blackout is sure to be a captivating sight and we are extremely proud to be taking part in such an exciting and influential event.
The WWF’s Earth Hour has become a global phenomenon with 2015 seeing 10.4 million people in the UK and a record 172 countries across the world celebrating. Join us this year and switch off your lights at 8:30pm on Saturday 19th March 2016, or visit us in-store to mark this special event.
