With so much food being purchased at this time of year, the problem of storing it safely rears its ugly head. Luckily Chill Pod has the solution with a range of bags which comfortably outperformed all similar bags in the marketplace.

Warmth – the perfect present this Christmas


 Winter usually means two things– cold weather and Christmas!

As the nights draw in and the temperatures drop, keeping warm can become a problem- particularly with rising fuel prices. Many prefer to grin and bear the cold conditions in order to limit cost of heating the home, sometimes with fatal consequences. The UK government currently estimates that over 4m UK households suffer from ‘Fuel Poverty’ during the winter months. The government is considering further cuts to the Winter Fuel Payment, which is a lifeline to many and which led to Dot Gibson, general secretary of the National Pensioners' Convention, calling winter deaths amongst older people a “national scandal”.

As for Christmas, finding the perfect gift for friends and loved ones is always difficult, with millions of pounds wasted each year on unused and unwanted presents. Now, there is a product that solves both of these headaches; Cosy Pod.

Cosy Pod provides an economical way to keep warm during the winter. Unique in that, there is no need to plug anything in and use precious fuel, Cosy Pod is a perfect Christmas gift for any family member or friend who dislikes or is susceptible to the cold weather.

Cosy Pod is a blanket made from revolutionary thermal reflective material, originally developed by NASA; Flectalon. Independently proven in studies by the University of Bristol, Flectalon is an extremely efficient insulation material, which combines trapped-air thermal insulation with multiple mirror finish surfaces. It effectively reflects infra-red back onto the person wrapped within the blanket, ensuring that the core temperature is maintained and that the Cosy Pod user feels warm and comfortable, without having to use as much fuel to heat their homes.

The Cosy Pod is particularly effective as it does not require a high external temperature, but reflects a massive 95% of the body heat of the person wrapped inside the blanket back onto them. A testament to the effectiveness of the Cosy Pod material is that it has been used and endorsed in extreme survival conditions, with blankets having been used in sub-zero temperatures. A North Sea diving company use Flectalon due to its superior insulation in freezing conditions. The Emergency services also use the blankets for mountain rescue work.

Ideal for the elderly who are particularly vulnerable to cold weather, the blankets are also perfect for use in the car while travelling, for wheelchairs and pushchairs, at picnics or outdoor concerts or for those in recovery.

Cosy Pods are highly durable, meaning that the one-off payment has the potential to provide insulation and warmth for many winters to come. In comparison to the cost of keeping the heating on for even just an hour more a day, the Cosy Pod is a far more viable cost-effective solution, and a sound investment. Currently available in a neutral beige/brown colour, the blankets are finished in a suede-type material, making them ideal bed or chair throws when not being used.

Cosy Pod is lightweight and easy to store, but very hard wearing, machine washable and is of high quality UK manufacturing.
Solve your winter headaches and buy your friends and family a Cosy Pod for Christmas.

Cosy Pod is a member of the Enviro-pod family. Enviro-pod is a new company with an exciting product range that reflects our very Green ethos. With Climate Change and the reduction of waste so high on the global agenda, the use of our products has the potential to make a real difference to the health of our environment, as well as save you money.

Our family of pods can be used as practical and valuable solutions in many aspects of life, always with the view to reducing any negative impact to the environment or to your wallet.

Call for Action on Soaring Energy Bills to Protect Norfolk's Elderly - Cosy Pod to Contact MP's


 We are contacting MP's about Cosy Pod following calls for action from David Cameron and senior figures, who are in demanding measures to reduce household energy bills.
 
According to the Norwich Evening News article:
 
Mr Cameron yesterday held a summit meeting with the chief executives of the "big six" energy suppliers, along with community groups and watchdog Ofgem.
 
The prime minister told them it was "absolutely vital" that consumers struggling already with rising food and petrol prices were not also hit by higher fuel bills.
 
Energy firm bosses agreed a number of measures and millions of customers will receive letters from the government offering advice on how to reduce costs by switching to different payment methods and taking advantage of free or subsidised insulation.
 
Suppliers have also agreed to put a message on bills this winter encouraging people to check whether rivals offer a better deal and to provide better information to help them switch.
 
Prime Minister David Cameron addresses a meeting of energy heads flanked by Energy Secretary Chris Huhne during a summit on gas and electricity prices in London. Picture: Matt Dunham/PA Wire.Last week, Age UK warned that fuel poverty could hit Norfolk harder than elsewhere in the country, because of its higher than average elderly population.
 
Phil Wells, chief executive of Age UK Norwich, said last night that the core issues which needed addressing were of a long-term rise in energy prices and the fact that the poorest often had to pay more for their energy per unit than the richest.
 
"Energy costs will go up and up and up, there's no doubting that as we're running out of oil and gas, and it seems to me that we are rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic at the moment by changing the billing.
 
"We must now address that we've got big problems for people on low incomes keeping warm and we need completely different ways to resolve that."
 
He said that current housing stock would be considered "laughable" in many European countries, adding that the real solution was to build new energy efficient homes and not draw on a stock that dates back to the Victorian years. 
 
He added: "The current range of home insulation techniques can save a good 10pc of costs and that's nice but it's not a game changer. We need to half our costs and that's by putting in new build housing that's more energy efficient."

Brenda Arthur, leader of Norwich City Council, called for more working together between central and local government on the issue, which she did not thing was completely understood.
 
She said: I think that a large sector of the government doesn't have a clear idea of what fuel poverty is like and a large number of people are increasingly facing fuel poverty. 
 
"Until they totally understand what an impact it has on their lives, I don't think we're going to get anywhere."
 
In recent months, Norwich City Council has struck deals with energy company Carillion to carry out £2.4m worth of work on homes which will see solar panels and insulation installed.
 
It also agreed a similar scheme in July to work with British Gas to invest more than £800,000 into improving the energy efficiency of homes in Bowthorpe. 
 
Mrs Arthur said: "I take on the point from David Cameron people need to use their energy wisely, but I don't think the people who are struggling that I've met are being profligate- they're doing their best to make ends meet.
 
"It would be good to see central government supporting us rather than beating us up which is how it feels."
 
Norwich North MP Chloe Smith described the government's move as "helpful" and said: "I know most people I speak to in Norwich are worried about their bills, so it is sensible for government to get energy suppliers and Ofgem round a table to see how consumers can be helped." 
 
Norwich South MP Simon Wright defended the government's moves and pointed to the unveiling of a programme named Green Deal next year that will allow people to borrow money off future energy bills to increase the energy efficiency of their homes. 
 
He said: "The vast majority of housing stock is several decades old and we need real action to ensure that they're brought up to high standards."
 
We believe that Cosy Pods, part of the Enviro-Pod range can prove a big part of the solution by keeping people warm, without the need for electricity. As such we have contacted the relevant MPs as well as the Ministers for Climate Change and Health with details on the blankets.
