National Green Choice Warm Sweater Day

 This coming Friday, February 7, 2014 is National Green Choice Warm Sweater Day (“Greenchoice Warme Truiendag”).  You can check out the website (it's in Dutch).

In honor of the Kyoto Protocol this national event is scheduled each year in the Netherlands.  The Kyoto Protocol is an international treaty binding all industrialized nations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. 

Let’s join the Netherlands this Friday by wearing an extra layer of clothing,  turning down our heaters and thereby reducing our energy usage by 7% for every degree Celsius we lower the heat.
