This week is Climate Week
If you’ve come to our news pages while browsing out site for eco-friendly gifts, the chances are you’re the kind of person who might already know about the wonderful Climate Week.
The week kicked off on March 4th and will carry on going until March 10th – that’s this coming Sunday.
The biggest campaign in Britain to focus on the subject of climate change, it sees some 500,000 people head to 3,000 events across the nation every year.
The man in your life might have come across the occasion too, given that it’s taking on a football flavoured twist this Saturday (March 9th).
On that date, participating football clubs are set to add a green twist to the games they play.
"I encourage clubs, from players to ground staff, to plan their own Climate Week Match. If every club can kickoff more sustainably then we can call time on Football’s environmental impact," commented famed footballer Gary Neville on the Climate Week website.
One tip the week’s website provides is that people shower for short periods rather than bathe as a way of saving water.
Meanwhile, using the washing machine on a 30 degree setting, instead of the hotter 40 degrees can save energy, it says.
And using curtains and draught excluders can mean a home is better insulated and the heating doesn’t have to be turned up so high during winter.
Walking rather than jumping in the car can also help the environment, as Living Streets chief executive Tony Armstrong has suggested in the past.
"We’re turning into a nation which relies on cars for even short journeys and its no secret that this reliance has a negative impact on our environment," he said.
"Walking is the most carbon friendly form of transport there is," he added.
The activity is also a great healthy living option, of course.
"Regular walking can reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, cancer, osteoporosis and arthritis," Mr Armstrong said.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
