Bloomsbury Street bar and restaurantRadisson Edwardian Hotels are helping to tackle climate change by supporting WWF's Earth Hour for the third year running (Saturday, 26 March 2011 at 8.30). The privately owned UK hotelier has announced they will be switching off all public lights across their 12 London hotels to show world leaders they want to take action against climate change.

Set in prominent locations across the heart of the capital including; Leicester Square (Radisson Edwardian Hampshire), Mayfair (The May Fair Hotel), Bloomsbury (Radisson Edwardian Bloomsbury Street) and Heathrow (Radisson Edwardian Heathrow Hotel and Conference Centre), Radisson Edwardian will be plunging some of the busiest corners of London into darkness by switching off all public interior and exterior lights.

Hotel guests will also be encouraged to switch off their own bedroom lights and join the hotel for an intimate evening of dinner by candlelight.

“We are delighted to be supporting WWF’s Earth Hour once more and would urge all of our guests and partners to do the same” said Linda Plant, Radisson Edwardian marketing director. “As a global brand we believe we should earn our place on this planet and help to support and sustain our environment for future generations. We strive to conduct our business by improving our overall ecological and carbon footprint without compromising on guest experience and satisfaction.”

Katie Randerson, Head of Brand Communications at WWF-UK said: “Earth Hour has become a massive global event for us over the last few years. Of course it’s a challenge to get the lights switched out in major cities on a Saturday night, but a great sense of community develops as individuals, families, schools and organisations get involved in fun activities for Earth Hour. In WWF’s 50th year we want more people than ever to take part, show they care, and get involved as we look to the next 50 years.”
