FortisBC and the Business Improvement Areas of BC (BIABC) are again teaming up to promote energy conservation during “Turn Down the Heat Week” February 1 to 7, 2015.
Participating businesses in over 20 Business Improvement Areas in BC will turn down the heat at work and at home, and wear sweaters to help promote energy conservation. Businesses will also collect sweaters and other warm clothing to be donated to local charities. For the last two years this campaign has collected more than 10,000 sweaters across BC.
Local Sechelt business are accepting the challenge during “Turn Down the Heat Week.” Some will offer sales on sweaters or on hot drinks; and some will find creative ways to collect warm clothes for the local Salvation Army. The Sechelt Downtown Business Association is challenging the community to donate 900 sweaters this year that will go to the local Salvation Army for those in the community in need.
