National Sweater Day on February 17th

Gear up for National Sweater Day on February 17th, and chase away that wintry chill by wearing your favorite wooly pullover.  Whats your style statement- is it preppy argyle, modern abstract, or a tip of the hat to tradition with cables and fair isle?   On February 17th, take part in a nationwide challenge, to pull on your cosiest sweater and show your support for climate change by turning the thermostat down three degrees.  If each and every Canadian conserved energy by just a few degrees, we could save 2.2 megatonnes of carbon dioxide in a year.  That’s equal to removing three hundred and fifty thousand cars off the road.  

Take the National Sweater Day pledge, and show your support for a healthier environment.  There are lots of great activities and ideas to get friends, family and co-workers involved at www.wwf.ca/sweaterday.  Every little change makes a bigger impact on the overall health of our planet.

    keeping the temperature set at least three degrees less is a good idea not just this week but everyday
    after years of living in an old drafty house i truly appreciate the warmth of a good wool sweater and the energy saving features built into it.

    finally others are catching on to a simple idea, keeping the temperature cooler and throwing on a sweater to stay warm.
