Because staying warm in the office doesn’t have to cost the Earth…

Turn Down The Heat

Brrr! It’s not summer anymore! And as the cold, dark days roll in, we’ve got some great tips for keeping cosy in the office (without cranking up that heating)…

Layers, layers, layers
Layering is key this winter – it’ll keep you cosy and you can peel a few off if Martin from accounts gets a bit thermostat happy. Bundle up in long sleeved tees under jumpers and always keep a chunky cardigan under your desk to throw on if you get chilly.

Drink more tea
We don’t really need an excuse to drink more tea but drinking warm drinks is a great way to keep your hands from getting frosty and warming up your tummy.

Get woolly
The fabrics you wear play an important role in your body temperature too. Cotton absorbs moisture from the body so can make you feel colder while wool will trap the heat against your body and keep you warm.

Put a sock on it
Invest in some decent socks like these cosy bamboo socks from Nigel’s Eco Store – it makes a big difference if you can keep your feet warm so layer up a few pairs in needs be!

And speaking of socks, check out this weird video about eco-friendly socks entitiled The Sockfather
