Taking the Chill Off

Is your work area or dorm room too cold for your comfort in the winter? If you’ve considered buying a space heater to alleviate the cold, consider instead Cozy Toes heated floor mats and Toasty Toes heated footrests, endorsed by W&M’s Environment, Health and Safety Office. Both are available from A Cozy Toes mat consumes less electricity than a light bulb, can’t tip over and cause a fire, and costs pennies per day to use. The Toasty Toes footrest uses 1/10th the energy of a space heater, fits under any desk and adjusts to three different positions. You don’t have to sacrifice your comfort to be green. Want more? Check out the CozyWinters website for everything from the Bench Warmer Battery Heated Stadium Seat Cushion for those chilly night games at Zable Stadium, to the Psolar facemasks, which capture heat as you exhale to return heat to your body.
