Thankfully the WWF does not want us to turn off our BlackBerrys for Earth Day but they are asking participants to turn off their lights at 8:30PM local time on March 27th to show support for climate change. I don’t know how I feel about the whole idea but Xtreme Labs has released a free BlackBerry app counting down to Earth Day and an accompanying theme which costs $2.99.
From the description:
Earth Hour is Saturday, March 27 at 8:30 p.m. local time and encourages people to turn off their lights to show support for action on climate change.
As lights go off around the world, this application will keep you connected with news, local events and participants from across the globe. Join the movement and stay in the conversation as WWF teams and individual supporters get ready for the big day.
During Earth Hour you can countdown with us, see photos of cities across the globe celebrating and submit your own photos of how you are spending the big night.
