Oh believe it or not, but Canada, one of the coldest countries on Earth, is going to set us an example this Thursday, February 17: It’s holding a national sweater day. It’s target is that 150,000 (or more) Canadian families turn down the heat on the day by 3°C and putting on a sweater.
What an amazing act to fight against climate change!
Sweater Day is an initiative of the WWF. Their site (www.wwf.ca/events/sweater_day) offers several ways to get involved including
- Take their National Sweater Day pledge. (In the past that meant, for a chance to win some prizes. Let’s see what they’ll come up with this year…)
- Sweater yourself on Facebook with their app. Dress up your profile picture and show your friends that you’re serious about fighting climate change.
- Bid on a designer sweater, donated by leading Canadian designers. All proceeds go to WWF.
Join us in this stance against climate change.
