UK clean energy victory!

The UK’s renewable energy capacity now outdoes its unsustainable cousin. Although there’s a way to go before the UK can lay claim to complete cleanliness, the stats suggest it’s on the right track!

Share your journey

People have hitch-hiked forever. Now, though, there’s an app for it.
With BlaBlaCar, you can search 100’s of scheduled journeys and hop along for the ride. Not only will this get you from A to B with ease, but will ensure fewer 1-person cars on the road (great for environment & traffic!), save you money & offer the chance to make a friend.

Buddy up for your next journey

Cold showers are what you need.

Want to feel better? Want clearer skin & stronger, softer hair? Want to save money, time & energy? Then add a cold shower to your morning routine. This might sound too good to be true, but, overshadowed by its more comfortable cousin, cold water therapy is as old as water itself.
Don’t believe us? Read here & try for yourself.

Catapult your morning routine

Heard about the personal microbiome? It’s only one of the most important scientific discoveries of the century!
You are full of tiny lifeforms that do you good. However, you need to keep them healthy. How? Well, it’s as easy as drinking an Olipop: a soda full of what your microbiome needs.

Drink to good health
