You’re relaxing in your garden at the end of a long, hot summer’s day, probably full of barbecued meats and ice cream. Despite your determined efforts to remain in your sunnies for as long as possible, the sun edges its way below the horizon and for the first time that day you feel the intense summer heat ease, replaced by the slight chill of an evening’s breeze. What do you do? Don’t reach for a blanket or jumper; you stashed them away the moment Spring sprung and they remain the reserve of cold winter nights. Instead, strike a match and light your Planika bio-ethanol outdoor fire; sit back and continue to enjoy every last moment of summer.
Renewable, smokeless and warm, Planika’s fires are not only friendly to the environment, they look stunning. That’s why we leaped at the opportunity to supply Essex’s Writtle College with a Planika Jar Commerce fire for their garden at the Ideal Home Show at Olympia London 18 March – 3 April. Their garden’s theme is sustainability, and the centrepiece is the Planika fire.
We are excited to be involved in this project on a number of levels. Firstly, we are always happy to help our local community, and it is a pleasure to offer the students at Writtle College who are working on this project the opportunity to incorporate the latest in sustainable designs into their plans.
Secondly, clean, responsible and sustainable burning is a key motivator for us. We view the opportunity to show a wider audience new and greener heating options as a valuable tool in not only helping the environment, but ensuring the longevity of our industry.
Writtle College will be entering their garden into the show competition and we wish them every luck. If you’re visiting the show be sure to take a look at their garden – we’re sure you’ll enjoy it, and perhaps find a little inspiration to make the most out of your garden this summer.
