International Polar Bear Day is Feb. 27th............

There’s no better way to honor polar bears on their special day than taking a meaningful step (or two) to reduce CO2. We’re inviting all of you to join us—wherever you live—by planning an activity that shows your commitment to these magnificent animals and their threatened habitat.

Here are some simple ideas to get you started:

  • Bundle up and turn down the heat by five degrees
  • Begin a No Idle habit: turn off your car engine when waiting in line—or park and walk inside

Or, do something BIG—um, polar-bear-sized:

  • Organize a community service day to add weather-stripping to houses for senior citizens, saving them money and reducing CO2
  • Gather up a team to install solar panels at your workplace or a community center
  • Hold an event like a polar bear plunge to raise awareness and funds to support PBI
