Vancouver Canada – Global landmarks and millions of people across the world will switch off their lights on Earth Hour this coming Saturday, March 29th, 2014, and so will Max’s Restaurant Cuisine of the Philippines from 8:30 pm – 9:30 pm, to commemorate Max’s commitment to protecting the planet.

Earth Hour started out as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia on March 31, 2007. It is a worldwide grassroots movement organized by WWF – World Wildlife Fund for Nature. WWF raises awareness of climate change and encourages all nations to share opportunities and challenges in creating a sustainable world through conservation of energy and resources.

Over 2.2 million individuals and 2,000 businesses joined the very first event. And this year, Earth Hour 2014 will mark its 7th Year Campaign and Max’s Restaurant’s 2nd year of participation.

“Since Max’s Vancouver opened its doors in May 2012, they have been environmentally conscious about what they do and use in the restaurant. They installed energy efficient hand dryers in the washrooms that also help reduce the use of paper towels. They took part in BC Hydro’s Candlelight Conservation Dinner in October 2013 and also started working with an Energy Advisor late last year to find alternative lighting fixtures that consume less energy but still give the same amount of brightness to the place. It is important for Max’s to contribute to the environment no matter how small of an act it may be, and participating in Earth Hour is definitely no exception as Max’s try to help spread awareness to our fellow Filipinos here in British Columbia.” Says Faye Nalicat, PR, Media & Community Relations O/B Max’s Restaurant Vancouver.

This coming March 29th between 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm, as part of Earth Hour Event, the restaurant invites its customers to enjoy an Appetizer Special for only $8.99 which includes Cauliflower Puffs, Sweet Potato Fries, Lumpiang Shanghai, Adobo Chicken Wings and Chicken Chicharon. Join Max’s between 8:30 pm – 9:30 pm for a Candlelight Dinner as we observe the inspirational hour.
