Sears and Kmart stores to go dark for Earth Hour
Hoffman Estates, Ill. -- Sears and Kmart stores nationwide will participate in the global Earth Hour initiative by turning off or dimming all non-essential lighting March 26 from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., including every other television and most computer monitors. The company anticipates saving 80,000 kilowatt hours as a result. Earth Hour is a world-wide call to action started by the World Wildlife Fund four years ago to help fight climate change. To get involved, a company or individual must commit to turning down or off (where possible) any non-essential lighting.
