Mission Statement

LightsOut Akron is being organized by the Portage Trail Group of the Sierra Club. Sierra Club is recognized as the largest environmental organization in the United States.

Description

LightsOut Akron is a community-wide Akron pride event during which residents, businesses and governments will turn off their non-essential lighting for one hour. Start building the habit to reduce energy usage and help cut carbon emissions without noticeably affecting your lifestyle!

The world's scientists agree: Global warming is real, and we are just starting to feel the effects. But scientists also say we can curb global warming and its consequences -- if we take bold, comprehensive action now that adds up to an 80 percent cut in carbon emissions by 2050, or 2 percent a year. You can start with a simple step that can lead to a long-term pro-environmental habit.
