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.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
