Napping For Nature: Sleep More And Save The Environment

We loved last weekend’s special green edition of the Observer Magazine in conjunction with The Observer’s Ethical Awards. Being the lazy environmentalists that we are we particularly enjoyed John Hind’s article on how sleeping more saves energy. That’s just fine by us…before I go take a nap here are some of his wise words: ‘The 5 per cent of Britons who regularly grab less than five hours sleep utilise 16 per cent more electricity, 9 per cent more gas and consume and burn over 1.5g more fat in each 24 hours than the 6 per cent of Britons getting over nine hours in the land of nod.’ Zzzzzzzzzz ::The Observer Magazine
