Do it in the dark to save the planet

Telling scary stories, having dinner in the dark, or wearing panda onesies... these are just some of ideas for ways to celebrate Earth Hour this year.

Pop group McFly are the ones dressing up as pandas - the mascot of the World Wildlife Fund, which organises the event - while a group of celebrities including comedian Alistair McGowen and actress Miranda Richardson are teaming up to record their favourite "Just So" stories for an audio book.

Earth Hour is an annual event that focuses the world's attention on the planet itself, and our need to protect it. At 8.30 pm on 23 March, millions of people will turn off their lights for one hour on the same night all across the world, in a huge show of support for the environment.

This year's campaign highlights the need to move away from fossil fuels and look at ways to use clean, Green energy which harnesses the power of nature, rather than continuing to exploit dwindling, non-renewable sources.

Join the campaign on Twitter with the hashtag #doitinthedark
