This is according to the World Wildlife Federation - Canada. But, why stop at Canada? Why not celebrate everywhere that it's cool enough to put on a sweater in February?
This is a great way to think GREEN. Here's a excerpt from their website which explains the thinking behind National Sweater Day.
"National Sweater Day gives Canadians the opportunity to show their commitment to the planet by turning down their thermostats. Wearing a sweater is a symbolic gesture of support for rethinking our energy consumption and using energy in a more conservative way. It's a fun, quirky and energetic way of starting new dialogue about energy, and building buzz about one of the most critical environmental issues of our time."
I plan to celebrate. The hard part, however, will be trying to decide just what sweater to wear. Perhaps a green one is in order.
How about you?
