Blues, NHL to Celebrate \"Earth Hour\"
ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Blues, along with all of the National Hockey League’s (NHL) facilities, have pledged their commitment to World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) Earth Hour, the world’s largest annual public action for the environment.

“The St. Louis Blues and Scottrade Center are proud to be a part of Earth Hour with the rest of the National Hockey League this Saturday evening,” said Marty Brooks, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Scottrade Center. “We are hoping that everyone in the St. Louis area will join the Blues in this program and conserve as much energy as possible on Saturday.”

On Saturday, March 31 when the Blues host the Columbus Blue Jackets, Scottrade Center and all NHL arenas will join hundreds of millions of homes and businesses worldwide, switching-off non-essential lighting for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 PM local time.

While the battles on the ice intensify, the building’s energy consumption will decline. All facilities have pledged to scale-back the energy used in their operations during the globally recognized hour. Twenty of the League’s 30 Clubs will be in-action that evening. NHL Green is further supporting this initiative by reducing energy usage at NHL headquarters in New York City at that time.

The goal of Earth Hour is to show the world that even taking the seemingly smallest measures to conserve energy is a big step in the right direction for communities, businesses and governments across the globe.

"For the NHL, the success of this event is about more than turning the lights off for one hour. It is about changing the way our sport approaches energy consumption,” said Bernadette Mansur, SVP of NHL Green. "Our facilities are challenging themselves to operate more efficiently, and we are encouraging our employees to observe Earth Hour at home and reduce their energy consumption throughout the day."

In 2010, the National Hockey League formalized a commitment to protecting the environment by launching NHL Green, a program which has developed measurement tools and sustainability initiatives to help reduce the energy, water and waste associated with facility operations and the game. In 2011, the League was presented with Beyond Sports’ 2011 Sport for Environment award.

NHL Green encourages all fans to participate in Earth Hour on Saturday, March 31 and commit to making small adjustments that reduce their impact on the natural environment.

About Earth Hour
Started in Australia in 2007, by the World Wildlife Fund, Earth Hour has grown to become the world’s largest global climate change action. Earth Hour supporters turn off non-essential lighting for one hour to send a symbolic message - that now is the time to take action on climate change. More than 5,200 cities and towns in 135 countries worldwide switched off their lights for Earth Hour 2011, including global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Rome’s Coliseum and Empire State Building.
