As Earth Hour approaches on March 29 at 8:00 p.m., many people are turning off their lights at home and making plans to go out. Depending on your city’s participation, it is important to dress appropriately for your safety with the potential lack of visibility.

Keep in mind that light from store windows that might normally carry over to the street may not be there to help keep you safe. Keep a lookout for cars and bicycles, but also use this opportunity to express your style.

Here’s a few ideas for you:

  • Dig in your closet for something shiny and perhaps a little “bling” to help you stand out in the dark. Whether you are spending Earth Hour in the clubs or on a stroll around the block you definitely want to think safety. Wearing reflective type clothing definitely keeps you more visible.
  • Find glow-in-the-dark stickers as an accessory for your outfit. I recommend sticking them to white or light clothing. This might also help you catch someone’s eye and be the start of a new business for you.
  • If you are staying home, have fun by making glow-in-the-dark pillow cases and then having a night-time pillow fight. I used to have glow-in-the-dark sponge ball wars as a child.
