On March 23, 2013, hotels on the Las Vegas Strip went dark as a part of the World Wildlife Fund’s Earth Hour, a global event to raise awareness about sustainability and environmental responsibility.

This blog prefers Vegas the other way, but we see what they're going for.

Las Vegas hotels went dark from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. This is the fifth year Caesars Entertainment hotels have taken part in the event.

Beyond the symbolic dimming of non-essential exterior lights and marquees each year, Earth Hour serves as an opportunity for hotels like those in the Caesars Entertainment family to share information about their ongoing sustainable business practices and environmental programs.

As much as Las Vegas prides itself on being a place for excess, resort companies in Las Vegas take seriously their programs intended to reduce water, energy and waste consumption. Many of the programs not only help save the environment, but also save the companies money, which means lower costs for guests. Everybody wins.
