It's Sweater Day!

Hey, here's a super easy way to conserve energy: turn down your thermostat and throw on a sweater. They're cozy, warm, and by wearing one instead of cranking the heat, you can do a lot of good for the environment.

And today's the day to do it. Sweater Day is a nation-wide campaign by the World Wildlife Fund, to help fight against climate change.

If every Canadian turned down their thermostat by two degrees each winter, it would be the same as taking 350,000 cars off the road.

Today, the WWF is asking you to go one step further - turn down your thermostat by three degrees and throw on a funky sweater. And, if you needed a little inspiration, a bunch of people on my team are wearing Strombo hoodies.
