Today I wore a thick sweater to work because is a Thick Sweater Day (Warme Truiendag). This annual event means that all participating buildings set the thermometer a couple of degree lower than normal. The idea of this event is to save 7% energy and to decrease CO2 emissions by 7%. It started after the first anniversary of the Kyoto Protocol. My office participates with the yearly event.
Luckily due to this mild winter, it was not really that cold at the office. Outside it was 10 degree Celsius and inside it was 18 degree Celsius.
My heater at home is set around 18 – 20 degree Celsius no matter what the temperature is outside. Before going to bed at night I lower the heater’s temperature to 15 degree Celsius to save the energy. That is at least what I can do to live green.
