Spider-Man and Earth Hour join forces in a one of a kind partnership to save the planet. Driven by the message to inspire individuals to use their power to become superheroes for the planet, the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) plunged into this partnership in time for Earth Hour.
This year, Earth Hour and the hero of the highly-anticipated motion picture The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – along with the film’s stars, Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx and director Marc Webb – are throwing their support behind Earth Hour Blue, which aims to harness the power of the crowd to raise funds for on-the-ground environmental projects from across the world.
“I’m proud Spider-Man is the first superhero ambassador for Earth Hour because he shows we can all be superheroes when we realize the power we all have,” says Andrew Garfield, who plays Spider-Man in the upcoming film. “Earth Hour is a movement that has created massive impact around the world, so imagine what we can do this year with Spider-Man by our side.”
“The idea of Earth Hour has grown beyond anything we could have dreamed of. With the help of Spider-Man, we are taking the movement to the next stage. We hope that Spider-Man will empower individuals to be superheroes for the planet, and use their voice or their dollars to support projects or campaigns around the world. It’s about harnessing the power of the crowd. That’s what Earth Hour Blue is all about,” saysEarth Hour co-founder Andy Ridley.
This year’s Earth Hour is happening on Saturday, March 29, from 8:30PM to 9:30PM.
