(PR NewsChannel) / March 23, 2015 / NEW YORK 

Earth Angel LogoEarth Angel Sustainable Production Services, the East Coast’s premiere sustainability consultants for the entertainment industry, are hosting the city’s first organized Earth Hour event. Earth Hour is the World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) worldwide lights-off movement to unite people to protect the planet. Earth Angel’s NYC tribute is called EARTH angel HOUR and will take place on March 28, 2015 at the Centre for Social Innovation in Chelsea.

“We want to bring Earth Hour to NYC like never before,” states Emellie O’Brien, co-founder and president of Earth Angel. “We want to send a clear, resounding message that entertainment should never be made at the expense of the environment, and that we, as an industry, are actively combatting climate change every day on our shows. Not to mention we want to throw a candle-lit party for the planet!”

“Earth Hour 2014 broke all records of mass participation and mobilized millions of people to become everyday superheroes for the planet.” –

“Earth Hour is a way for the citizens of the world to send a clear message: they want action on climate change,” said Ban Ki-Moon, UN Secretary General.

The spark for EARTH angel HOUR was ignited last year when Sony Pictures Entertainment partnered with Earth Hour to make Spider-Man the first superhero ambassador for Earth Hour. O’Brien, who served as the Eco Manager during the production of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, was disappointed in the lack of Earth Hour awareness in NYC in 2014 and decided to get her company and the film and television community behind a 2015 event. EARTH angel HOUR is casual cocktail attire and will offer drinks, hors d’oeuvres, live music, a photobooth and a whole lot of sustainable fun!


EARTH angel HOUR will be held at The Centre for Social Innovation in Chelsea, Manhattan. The address is 601 West 26th Street, #325, New York, NY 10001.

Doors open at 7pm, the lights-out ceremony begins at 8pm, and Earth Hour is officially 8:30-9:30pm.

Tickets are $50 each and available at:

Earth Hour is a worldwide grassroots movement uniting people to protect
the planet, and is organized by World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Engaging a massive mainstream community on a broad range
of environmental issues, Earth Hour was famously started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007. Since then it has grown to engage more than 7,000 cities and towns worldwide in turning off the lights of homes, businesses and landmarks for one hour. The one-hour event continues to remain the key driver of the now larger movement.
