Help us make it a global day of action for the bears by taking part in the Thermostat Challenge at home, work, or school.

It's simple: just lower your thermostat on February 27th to reduce your carbon emissions and help polar bears. Then make every day a polar bear day by buying and installing a programmable thermostat or taking extra steps to reduce your energy consumption throughout the year.
