Support Liftshare Week

Tuesday, 28 September 2010


.

Here at Myakka we are always looking at ways in which we can help lessen our environmental impact, with that in mind we are supporting Liftshare Week which is running from the 4th  - 8th October 2010. This is a great opportunity to cut your carbon footprint and ease the morning congestion by sharing a lift to and from work.  Not only does it help the environment it can also help reduce stress levels and make your journeys more fun.  Here at Myakka we car share whenever possible and have a regular pair of car sharers who share their journey to and from work everyday.

.

Lift sharing is an easy way of making a big difference to our environment by reducing your carbon footprint and easing congestion. It is also a great opportunity to meet people from your local community as well as a great opportunity to swap local knowledge about events and services.

.

If you would like more information on how you can find a car share partner, work out how much money you can save as well as the reduction of your carbon footprint simply visit www.liftshare.com for more information.

Support Organic Fortnight

Wednesday, 8 September 2010



Here at Myakka we always support a good cause and this fortnight is no different with the start of organic fortnight. The Soil Association organise this to encourage us all to buy and eat organic. This year the event runs from the 3rd-17th September 2010. Organic farming produces less greenhouse gasses,  has higher standards of animal welfare, is better for our wildlife such as butterflies, birds and bees and the produce contains no GM goods and has less additives in.

.

Why not participate and host an organic dinner party for some friends, or go along to a Soil Association approved/certified restaurant or do something as simple as try to add something organic to your dinner.  Here at Myakka we have been swapping lots of home grown organic fruit and veg such as apples, cucumbers and courgettes.

.

Being organic doesn’t just have to be about your food, why not try some organic clothing or swap your normal shampoo for an organic one. There are lots of ways to support organic fortnight just by making small changes in your day to day life.

.

For more information about how you can participate in organic fortnight and events that are taking place in your area please visit www.soilassociation.org .

Myakka Illuminations

Wednesday, 1 September 2010

This Friday sees the lights switched on of the famous Blackpool illuminations. With this in mind we thought it be worth having a look some more subtle lights with our great selection of fair trade lamps and our range of lampshades.

.

We have four different wooden lamp designs with their design origins from both Thailand and India and are available as a pair or as a single statement lamp. All of our lamps are tested and certified to meet UK electrical standards and come complete with a British made natural cotton shade.

.[gallery link="file" columns="4"]

  • The Joe Lamp is based on an original design from Thailand made from Mango wood. It is finished with a walnut effect and a 12’’ shade.  This lamp sits beautifully as a reading lamp on your bedside cabinet.


.

  • The Indian Ball Lamp is made from Sheesham wood, which is the same as our Mallani and Thakat ranges, and is based on an original Rajasthan design. This lamp features five stacked ‘balls’ and comes with a 14’’ shade. This is an attractive piece that would suit any room of your home.


.

  • The Tuscan Lamp is a distinctive lamp based on an original Thai design made from Mango wood with a 14’’ shade. This chunky lamp can hold its own and sits nicely in your living or dining room on a sideboard or lamp table.


.

  • The Striped Lamp is a modern yet traditional looking lamp which comes with a 10’’ shade carved from Mango wood. Based on an original design from Thailand, this detailed lamp looks great just about anywhere in your home and will fit with both modern and traditional decors.


.

As well as our selection of fair trade lamps we also have a great range of lamp shades. We have shades to suit any room in your home from bright and colourful to white and understated. Take a look at our popular beaded lampshades available in multicoloured, pink and green & blue, or if you are looking for something a bit more colourful then our hand painted Daisy Lampshades may be just the thing.  If you love elephants then our cotton Elephant Lampshade may be perfect. Our Wire Dragonfly Lamp Shade is ideal for a more neutral room and is made from white recycled paper. Any dinosaur lover will be smitten with our Dinosaur Lampshade and to finish the look a matching dinosaur cushion is available.
