Your Next Mission: Re-set the ‘stat

Climate change is one of the biggest threats facing our planet today, and one of the ways you can help fight against it is by cutting back on the amount of energy you use at home!

Heating our homes is important for surviving Canadian winters, but many of us are keeping it warmer than it needs to be. Over 62% of the energy we use at home goes towards heating, which is more than all the energy we use for appliances and lighting combined!

Your Mission: Adjust your thermostat and help conserve energy at home!

Most Canadians use natural gas or electricity to heat our homes, both of which release greenhouse gases when they’re burned or generated (depending on the energy source). These greenhouse gases end up in our atmosphere and contribute to climate change. That’s why it’s so important to save energy, and a great way to start is by adjusting your thermostat!

To complete this Mission, you must:
– Turn your thermostat down for at least one week in the winter.
– Put the sticker that came with your Mission Brief beside your thermostat as a reminder to keep the temperature lower in the winter.
– Throw on your wackiest, craziest, fuzziest, or comfiest sweater and use the tips in the Mission Brief to keep warm (don’t forget to take a pic!).
– When you’re done, come back and let us know how your mission went!
