National Sweater Day

National Sweater Day is February 5, 2015

Since 2010, over a million Canadians have participated in National Sweater Day. Be sure to follow the WWF blog for tips and stories as fellow knit-clad Canadians celebrate across the country. 

National Sweater Day is a fun way to learn about the importance of saving energy, and inspired you to use less heat all winter. Heating accounts for 80% of residential energy use in Canada, and is a significant source of emissions. If all Canadians lowered their thermostats by just 2 degrees Celsius this winter, it would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about 4 megatons – equivalent to shutting down a 600 mega watt coal-fired power station.

Wear your favourite sweater to show your support!!
