If you have two metres or so of space, you can sling a hammock. And in these days of social distancing and self isolation, what better way of whiling away your leisure time? Snooze, read a book or daydream about better days to come.
The word hammock originates from the Taino people of Central America who used the word hamaca to describe nets made from rope fibres. Hammocks themselves can be traced back 1,000 years to the Mayan civilization. The simple suspended beds provided a clever way to avoid dangerous creatures.
We have three modern lightweight hammocks to give away. This one-person hammock from Quechua measures a roomy 260 x 152cm and is fabricated from comfortable soft-touch polyester. Sling it up inside, between trees in your garden or take it further afield on a future trip in place of a tent.
To be in with a chance of winning a hammock, simply leave us a comment below and let us know where you’d sling it up.
An insurance provider like no other
Not only are we Britain’s most ethical provider according to The Good Shopping Guide, but we campaign for sustainable transport. Sometimes that means protesting until a school gets the zebra crossing they’ve been refused or running roadshows to encourage people out of their cars, or fixing bicycles for free. We also launched Green Transport Week and helped establish Car Free Day and Twenty’s Plenty to name just a few.
We’ve been campaigning for sustainable transport in this way for 30 years with the help of people like you. Supporting this work is easy – you simply take out Home insurance, cycle insurance, travel insurance and breakdown cover with us and we take care of the rest. We provide an excellent level of cover while putting concern for the environment at the heart of all we do.
