February 6th was National Sweater Day at St. Edmund and for DPCDSB
National Sweater Day has been going on since 2010 and this is the day when Canadians turn down their heat and wear a sweater to conserve energy and spread awareness of climate change. National Sweater day has traditionally fallen on the first Thursday of February. This year’s event was held on February 6, 2020. Take this opportunity to make National Sweater Day your own and turn down the heat, wrapping up and taking on climate change every February. Please share what you are doing with the hashtag #DPsweaterday and for tips and tools on how to host your own National Sweater Day please visit: http://www.wwf.ca/events/sweater_day/
