Double Feature: The Oscars & International Polar Bear Day

Polar bears and sea icePopcorn 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.

You could:

  • 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 info@pbears.org.
