New Zealand: Tauranga’s Mayor Supports Earth Hour

Tauranga’s Mayor Stuart Crosby has made the first local pledge in support of Earth Hour as part of the global campaign to dare the world to save the planet – ‘I will if you will.’

The international theme of Earth Hour 2012 is being embraced by Bayfair Shopping Centre this month, which in partnership with Tauranga City Council and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) New Zealand is encouraging the local community to pledge actions for the benefit of the environment.

Mayor Stuart Crosby was the first to make a pledge last week, committing to support the environmental recovery plan for Rena.

Tauranga City Council sustainability adviser Michelle Elborn says, “It is a pleasure to be working with Bayfair to deliver their contribution to Earth Hour celebrations. Tauranga is leading New Zealand’s Earth Hour celebrations this year, and Bayfair’s community pledge installation and dune replenishment project inspires environmental action and brings to the fore the importance of the local environment.
