Some of you may remember the Instagram survey we announced in conjunction with Pinergy here?
Well, thanks to the help of our amazing community of followers, we got some really great insights into how the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we live. This information is not only interesting, but helpful for all of us to understand how we can best help you to navigate this tricky period.
From an interiors perspective, we're all about that fab home office décor and stylish yet sustainable homeware, but Irish smart clean energy providers Pinergy have lot of techy solutions for you to not only keep costs down, but ensure your home is running as sustainably and environmentally-friendly as possible - something that's more important than ever before.
So drum roll please, here are the results of the survey! For more information about our Pinergy project, pick up our May-June issue. It's jam-packed with swoon-worthy interiors, smart home appliances and ideas for making your home healthier for both your family and the planet. And head over to Pinergy.ie to learn more about their discounted clean energy plans.
