National Sweater Day (and a giveaway!)
I love sweaters, and I love energy conservation, so I find it really fun to be partnering with World Wildlife Fund to help spread awareness about National Sweater Day. This initiative encourages everyone to turn down their thermostats and put on a sweater to save energy on February 9. It’s a fun initiative meant to show support for energy conservation.
On Feb 9th, put on your favourite sweater and turn the heat down a few degrees to help WWF
take action against climate change, and work toward a sustainable future. By rethinking how we use energy and how much we use, we can make a big impact on climate change. If every Canadian lowered the heat a few degrees this winter, it’d be like taking 300,000 vehicles off the road! So wear that sweater and make the world a better place for your Grandchildren.
I have 3 (three) Joe Fresh sweaters for giveaway to celebrate National Sweater Day. All you need to do is give me one quick tip on energy conservation on this post, and for a total of 2 entries, you can also tweet the following:
Shared an energy conservation tip with @hummingbird604 to enter to win a sweater for #NSD2012 http://is.gd/06jLlw
You can also call on February 9th and talk to a granny to do your pledge! How fun! Check out the promo video, which is really funny.
On Feb 9th, WWF wants you to lower your heat and wear a sweater to show you’re taking action against climate change. To make sure you put one on, Grannies are standing by to personally call and remind you. Pledge your support and book a call now.
Some facts on energy conservation that WWF sent me:
Residential heating produces about 44 megatonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per yearIf every Canadian turned down their thermostat by two degrees each winter, 2.2 megatonnes of carbon dioxide could be saved every year – the equivalent of taking 350,000 cars off the road60 per cent of energy goes to heating and cooling homes, most of it from fossil fuels
I will draw 3 winners of the Joe Fresh sweaters on Thursday February 9th, at 4pm. So, keep those energy conservation tips coming!
