St Albans restaurant blackout for environmental issues
PUBLISHED: 20:00 23 March 2018
A popular St Albans restaurant will be plunged into darkness as part of a stunt to raise awareness of global warming.
Diners in Bill’s will be eating by candlelight for an hour from 8.30pm on Saturday, in aid of the World Wide Fund’s Earth Hour.
The initiative has been set up to remind people of the environmental issues threatening our planet.
Bill’s CEO Duncan Garood said: “It is really important to us that all of our restaurants got involved in Earth Hour.
“We’ve been working hard to make our business as sustainable as possible.
“Our staff and customers have helped to drive this change so it’s great to be able to offer diners a unique experience at the same time.”
The restaurant also stopped providing plastic straws in February.
Earth Hour began as a symbolic event in Sydney in 2007 and has since spread around the world.
