Second Cup, Nando’s, Caramel, Deli by Shell and Wagamama will join the WWF global initiative Earth Hour by switching off the lights for one hour on Saturday.



For the ninth consecutive year. Bin Mirza International  will mark the occasion by switching off all non-essential lighting of its seven restaurants from 8.30-9.30pm on March 24.

“As a national company with many locations across Muscat, Bin Mirza is always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint,” said Jannat Shafaei, Marketing Director at Bin Mirza. “Earth Hour is about taking steps towards change in order to preserve a robust, clean and sustainable environmentally safe world.  At Bin Mirza we strive to make a difference through our conservational actions, and Earth Hour is a unique opportunity for the company to show our continued commitment to this important effort while generating awareness within the communities we operate in”.

Starting in Sydney, Australia in 2007, Earth Hour has become the world’s largest environmental grassroots movement.  Created to spread global and local awareness about the effects of climate change and global warming, participants are encouraged to turn off their lights for one hour on March 24th, from 8:30 PM to 9:30 PM every year.  Since its launch the movement has gained traction with millions of supporters participating across 172 countries and more than 7,000 cities across the globe as a symbol of their commitment to the planet.
