The countdown to Earth Hour 2017 has begun, with the organizers thanking the sponsors that supported the event in 2016.
A spokesperson said, “Several prestigious organizations stepped forward to help us bring a message of global sustainability to Bermuda.
“Their financial support meant Earth Hour costs were covered and any extra funds went into Greeenrock’s ‘Changing the Mindset’ fund.
“This supports our environmental education programmes and allows us to be advocates for Bermuda on issues of climate change, marine sustainability, energy policy and general sustainability issues overall. It also helps us with essential administration costs.
“Not yet a sponsor? Join us. Greenrock’s work is diverse and dynamic and we would be delighted to talk to you about our exciting plans for the next 12 months.
“We would like to thank the following organisations for their support of Greenrock and Earth Hour in 2016: Earth Hour Ambassadors Bacardi, The Waterfront Properties, Belco, and Corporation of Hamilton; Earth Steward Axis; Earth Sustainers Chubb and Validus; and Earth Gardeners Victoria Place, Butterfield & Vallis, Orbis, XL-Catlin, Ariel Re, and OIL Management.”
