Induction hobs are up to 50% quicker and more energy efficient than ceramic or radiant heat hobs.

The latest in energy-efficient clothes drying

Well, not really. However, JÄLL is a lightweight and portable drying rack that dries clothes in the most environmentally-friendly way possible. And you can use it indoors or outside. There when you need it, out of the way when you don’t, it can make everyday life just a little bit easier.

When making these energy saving blinds, we consulted the experts. Bees.

HOPPVALS energy-saving cellular blinds were inspired by the honeycomb prismatic wax found in beehives. They create a layer of insulation that can reduce your heating costs by up to 20%, lowering the general light level and providing privacy. All for a price that doesn’t sting your wallet.

A brighter life at home with LED lights

LED light bulbs work just as well outside as they do indoors, use much less energy than traditional bulbs and can last up to 20 years. Time to make the switch?
