Summer finally seems to have landed and on this week’s podcast Sophie and I discuss outdoor living. I am firmly of the opinion that you should take the indoors outdoors for true comfort. I want armchairs, sofas, and real crockery, while Sophie likes throwing a few rugs on the grass and a big pile of cushions. Head to wherever you download your podcasts for a listen.

And a big thank you to our sponsor Naturalmat for their support.

Sustainability has been at the heart of Naturalmat since day one, and in February this year, they became the first B Corp-certified bed & mattress company in the UK.  All their raw materials come from natural, renewable sources. Their Devon workshop is powered by the solar panels on the roof and they developed plastic-free packaging well before it was popular. They also run a scheme called Mattress for Life Initiative™ which ensures that none of their mattresses ever go to landfill. Instead, you can choose to Refurbish, Recycle, or Donate when the time comes. Every Naturalmat mattress can be broken down into its component parts which can be either composted, recycled or reused to ensure that absolutely nothing needs to go to landfill, and given that over five million mattresses end up in landfill I think that’s a scheme worth knowing about. They also offer a refurbishment service where they collect it from your home, take it back to the worktop, take it apart and replace any compressed or damaged fibres, and put a new cover on it making is as good as new for considerably less than the price of a new mattress.
