On Friday, April 20, 2012 members of the VMware Singapore office participated in Wear Less Day. Wear Less Day was an energy-saving fun activity for the Team to participate in to honor Earth Day and VMware’s Green initiatives. To prepare for Wear Less Day, the Singapore facilities team partnered with the building management to increase the indoor air conditioning temperature. Studies have shown that turning up the air-conditioning by one degree can lead to 3% in energy savings in a year and reduce carbon dioxide emissions. This was the impetus for Wear Less Day. The Singapore Team was encouraged to dress down during this day, by removing the “add-on” piece (i.e. jackets, shawls, cardigans) that most employees wear to stay comfortable during the work day. Employees could also include GREEN in their attire. Environmentally friendly materials such as organic cotton, hemp, thin wool, and bamboo were also clothing suggestions for the day. Continue reading
