Carbon Fast for Lent: Water Heater Wardrobe

Day 24 – Friday 20 March
“Put an insulation jacket on your hot water tank. If everyone does, we’ll cut enough carbon dioxide to fill 148,000 hot air balloons.”

I confess: I am not a homeowner and probably would not recognize a hot water tank if it walked up and shook my hand. But I’m confident that folks with water tanks know what they are and are willing to dress them in a spiffy jacket, blanket, or whatever insulation material is appropriate so they hold heat.

Today’s mitzvah:
Put some clothes on that tank!
