On Thursday, February 6, Pickering College in Newmarket, Ontario celebrated National Sweater Day. Students were encouraged to wear a favourite sweater over their regular school uniform; the thermostat was turned down a few degrees, and the school community was reminded that their small effort of wearing a sweater allowed us to save a large amount of energy. Making small changes in our everyday practices can collectively result in positive impacts for nature.
As well, we ran a sweater drive to collect clothing for a local shelter. This is the 5th year of this very successful campaign.
