We're Loving... Reee charis

We're hating... outdoor heaters

Outdoor gas heaters drive the eco-concious mad this time of year – they release more carbon monoxide in one day than an average car can in a year. Chimeneas are a great wood-burning outdoor stoves, made in clay and steel. And this model from Homebase, only costs £68.
