Today is National Sweater Day, as declared by WWF. By wrapping up in some cozy knits on this chilly February day, you’ll be able to turn the thermostat down by a few degrees. It may not seem like much, but a joint effort does make a real difference. From the WWF website:

“If all Canadians lowered their thermostats by just 2 degrees Celsius this winter, it would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about 4 megatons – that’s equivalent to shutting down a 600 megawatt coal-fired power station or taking nearly 700,000 cars off the road!”

In honor of National Sweater Day, we bring you a selection of lovely ethical sweaters that will keep you toasty through the remaining weeks of winter.
