Toronto Don Valley Hotel & Suites (TDV) is once again demonstrating its support for WWF's annual Earth Hour by powering down the hotel's electricity to only essential services on Saturday, March 29th, beginning at 8:30 p.m. EST. In addition, after residents shut off the electricity in their homes, the TDV is hosting an open invite for the community to spend Earth Hour at the hotel enjoying snacks and hot drinks. "According to Toronto Hydro, last year our city saw a 7 per cent drop in power use during Earth Hour, compared to the 6.8 per cent drop the previous year," said Kevin Porter, General Manager of Toronto Don Valley Hotel & Suites. "Every little bit helps our planet, so we are encouraging the community to power down and come enjoy the family-friendly festivities at our hotel."
