5 sustainable practices for the shiver-season

Long cold days always present wind, rain, hail and even some snow… No wonder most of us just want to crank up the thermostat and bundle up under a nice warm blanket. As cosy as it sounds, however, doing so might not be the best choice for our environment and wallets. It can seem challenging to stick to our sustainable lifestyle during the winter season; however, there are plenty of simple practices we can incorporate into our daily routines that will help us survive these dark months while saving energy and money. Below we have selected five easy and efficient tips which will help you get started!


It seems like the last thing anyone would want to do on a cold winter morning is wake up and take a quick, cold shower! Even though most people get the chills even thinking about this, it is a great way to activate your body and keep you warmer longer from the inside. Cold showers are also a great way to boost your immune system, which can be more sensitive and prone to colds during the winter season. On the other hand, taking long hot showers and baths requires considerably more energy and dries your already sensitive skin. So take a deep breath and just hop in; it gets better with time!
