More people die from the cold in the UK than Sweden. During winter, that’s one elderly person every seven minutes.
To prevent these deaths, a room has to be just 18 degrees. But with 11% of British households living in fuel poverty, many face a choice between heating and eating.

Elliot, Joe and Nick decided to use this innovation and produce a service with Ikea.
