Double Feature: The Oscars & International Polar Bear Day
Popcorn and CFL bulbs? Movie marquees and sea ice?
This year, the Oscars share billing with International Polar Bear Day ... a day to honor this magnificent animal by taking steps to reduce your carbon footprint.
- Make this the day you start unplugging computers, televisions, and small appliances when not in use
- Begin a No Idle habit: turn off your car engine when waiting in line—or park and walk inside
- Bundle up and turn down the heat by five degrees
- Spring for a water heater blanket (and start wrapping up the savings)
Whatever you do, have fun, spread the word—and share your thoughts and plans by tweeting them with the hashtag #pbday, posting them on our Facebook page, or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
