Video: Hockey heroes join Team Earth Hour

As I’ve mentioned before, my dad is a conservationist. But more than almost anything else, he’s a hockey fan.

So when he helpfully (ahem) mentioned that I hadn’t blogged in a LONG time, I knew I had a story that would make him happy: NHL stars are joining Team Earth Hour!

As NHL all-star and Team Canada captain Scott Niedermayer puts it, “When it comes to the fight against climate change, we’re all on the same team.”

The Montreal Canadiens also created a fun video encouraging fans to participate in the “lights out party” (click the image to watch it).

And here’s their pal Youppi getting in on the action.

You won’t get many opportunities in life to be part of a team with athletes like these! So sign up for Team Earth Hour today.

    Hi Sara,

    Good thing you have a “slave driving” father to keep you on the straight and narrow ! It is great to see people from all walks of life becoming more interested in Earth Hour and doing their best to get the message out there. People always say it is too late and it is meaningless to try anymore. IT IS NEVER TOO LATE AND EVERYTHING COUNTS AND MATTERS !!!
