Grab your sweaters everyone, one of our favorite holidays is coming up… National Sweater Day will be on February 4th this year in the United States and on February 2nd in Canada!
Beginning in the early 2000’s, millions have participated in National Sweater Day at schools, workplaces, and homes! This holiday is the perfect excuse to go digging through your closet to find your all-time favorite sweater or to even treat yourself to the one you have been pining after for months.
National Sweater Day is a time to be cozy, comfortable and warm, but it has another side to the story as well. As much as we would welcome a day dedicated to sweaters, this day is two-fold. It is a reminder to be conscientious and aware of the amount of energy you are using during the winter. We encourage everyone to throw on their comfiest, biggest sweater and to turn down your thermostats. Our goal is to have this not only last for a day, but for the rest of the winter!
Most people don’t realize the difference you can make by even just turning down your heat by two degrees. In fact, if we all turn our thermostats down by just that, it would be the equivalent of taking 700,000 cars off the road!
We will even help that statistic out and turn our heat down by double, even triple that! Krimson Klover sweaters will definitely keep us warm enough. This day is meant to be a fun and easy way to learn about the importance of saving energy and inspiring people to use less heat throughout the winter months. Gather your family, friends, and sweaters and come up with some plans of action that you can take to reduce the energy your using.
Join us in celebrating this amazing holiday and share your participation and awareness on social media using the hashtag #SweaterDay2018. This is the day we have been waiting for all year!
