National Sweater Day

Thank you!

National Sweater Day was February 4, 2016

Since 2010, over a million Canadians have participated in National Sweater Day at their schools, workplaces and homes. Be sure to follow our 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 to inspire 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 – that’s equivalent to shutting down a 600 mega watt coal-fired power station or taking nearly 700,000 cars off the road!

WWF is working towards a future where the energy we all use is from 100% renewable sources by 2050. Energy conservation is a key part of getting there.

National Sweater Day is supported by partial proceeds from Loblaw Companies Limited’s charge-for-plastic shopping bag program.
