Thursday Theme Song/Save the world:save your energy for me.

Save some energy for me.

Turn your heater off when you are not in your room.

Turn your thermostat down one notch.

Turn your TV off when you are not watching.

Cook with your utensils that fit your stove.

Turn your light off when you are out.

My friend Meg in Canada sent me this video which initally I thought was a conflict of interest of an energy company telling people to use less energy. I am very impressed.

Turning down the thermostat doesn't just help reduce the impact of climate change — it's a great way to reduce wasted energy.

Leaving your heat on all day while you're out of the house is like leaving your car running all night just to have it warm for the morning.

Conserving energy plays a key role in reducing our environmental footprint. That's why we're proud to support World Wildlife Fund Canada (WWF) and their Sweater Day campaign. Join Canadians across the country in making a difference by sporting your sweater and turning down the heat on National Sweater Day: Thursday, February 9.

The Sweater Dance Flashmob was an undoubtable success!! Big thank you to everyone who helped spread the word, learned the dance and showed up at our event! The official video is coming soon but it doesn't end here...

" On February 9th, put on your favourite sweater and turn the heat down a few degrees to help @WWFCanada take action against climate change, and work toward a sustainable future. By rethinking how we use energy and how much we use, we can make a big impact on climate change.

If every Canadian lowered the heat a few degrees this winter, it'd be like taking 300,000 vehicles off the road! "

I love the metaphor that leaving your heat on is like leaving your car running through the night. Very wise!
