BC has experienced so many extreme weather events this year. From droughts, to heat domes, catastrophic fires, devastating flooding, extreme cold and destructive king tides, the weather has affected everyone in the province. It can leave you feeling helpless. But small personal acts can still make a difference. Choosing to put on a sweater instead of turning up the heat is something you can do to help save energy usage, reduce costs and reduce the impact of climate change.
It is also the message behind World Wildlife Fund’s annual Sweater Day campaign, and BCIT Green Team is a proud participant.
And you can join us! On February 3rd, share your sweater selfie** on social media with the hashtag #BCITSweaterDay for a chance to win a warm BCIT hoodie of your choice.
**Furry friends’ sweater pics are also completely acceptable & welcome.
Feeling camera shy? You can also share other small personal ways to make a difference in the comments, too, such as washing clothes in cold water, commuting by bike, etc, instead of a photo.
