How to Stay Warm Whilst Saving Energy this Winter

With energy bills set to skyrocket with no prospect of coming down for the foreseeable future, many are looking for actionable ways to save energy. In this blog post, we will consider one actionable way to slash electricity and gas bills sustainably.

Wrap up warm

A very simple and old-fashioned way to warm up is to throw on an extra layer. You probably heard your parents or grandparents telling you to put on an extra layer when you were cold. And still, this remains the simplest way.

how to do it

Raid your cupboards or visit charity shops! Using what you have at hand or buying second-hand is not only the most sustainable way to keep warm, but also the cheapest.

If you are looking to invest in a new jumper, throw or blanket, choose one made from sustainable fabrics such as wool over ones made out of polyester and acrylic. Even reusing polyester blankets will shed micro-plastics into waterways when washed, so be sure to avoid plastic derived fabrics if possible.

Why choose a wool blanket?

Wool is a natural, renewable fibre with health benefits, gives luxurious comfort, stands the test of time and is healthier for the skin and the indoor environment. The benefits of wool blankets include:

  • Hypoallergenic
  • Dirt-resistant
  • Sustainable
  • Easy to clean
  • 100% Plastic-free
  • Breathable
  • Temperature-regulating
  • Odour-resistant
  • Durable
