Carnaby Street supports Earth Hour

Turtles, polar bears, puffins and elephants are just a few of the animals currently making an appearance in central London as part of a striking makeover the world-famous Carnaby Street arch has received in support of Earth Hour, the world’s largest event to protect the planet. 

The transformation, revealed today, marks the two-week countdown to Earth Hour and is the first ever Carnaby arch redesign ahead of the global event.

The makeover, which will be in place until 27th March features a variety of the wildlife we love including turtles, polar bears, elephants, penguins, puffins and cheetahs, vivid red coral and rainforest foliage. But the design carries an important message: that one in six animal species are threatened due to climate change, pollution and overconsumption.

For the first time, Carnaby will be switching off their lights for the hour to show their support for protecting the planet and to take part in the global moment. This will include their iconic art installations; the giant Plug and Bulbs on Ganton Street. Carnaby restaurants will also be taking part on the night with candlelit dinners at Dehesa, Claw Carnaby and Whyte & Brown. Visit for full tenant activity and more information.
