Chinese workers urged to dress down, save energy

Chinese leaders urged office workers to wear T-shirts instead of suits so that air-conditioners can be turned down to save energy, China Daily reported on Thursday.
The news comes in a week that a number of central government offices underwent a day without air-conditioning as part of a campaign to cut energy consumption and improve energy efficiency.
"Several leaders of the State Council recently called on office workers to dress casually instead of in formal suits," the China Daily said.
"Wearing light clothing such as T-shirts makes it possible for air-conditioners to be turned down in offices."
