Do Expiry Dates Matter?

do expiry dates matter

How seriously do you take the best before and expiry dates on the food products you buy? Every perishable item for sale in our stores includes some kind of date and some people refuse to eat anything past their expiry and best before dates. We know that these dates are a good indication of how fresh the food is, but exactly how necessary is it to abide by these dates?

After a bit of research I discovered a very interesting fact.

Sinchies Facing the Plastic Crisis

plastic crisis Sinchies

Recently, National Geographic Magazine have been sharing some devastating photos of the plastic crisis our Planet Earth is currently experiencing. These photos are appalling. You can check them out here (National Geographic), here (National Geographic Instagram) and here (Bored Panda).

I understand that plastic has a necessary place in our world, but this resource being abused. Every resource must be used responsibly and very few are. This is an age old problem that isn’t just about plastic. For example, in one of Bill Bryson’s books (favourite author alert!), Bill tells us that pecan nut trees ran the risk of going extinct in America because it was easier for the first European settlers to cut down a tree to harvest the nuts, than it was to pick the nuts off the tree. Wow! Just wow!

Interesting Product Feature: Simply Bamboo Toothbrushes

Simply Bamboo Toothbrushes

Recently I came across the marvelous world of bamboo toothbrushes.

According to Wikipedia, one toothbrush manufacturing company in Britain manufactures 70 million toothbrushes a year. Plastic found in standard toothbrushes cannot be recycled. That means that every used and discarded plastic toothbrush ever made is sitting in a landfill somewhere, making the number of now useless toothbrushes astronomical. Obviously, this is not sustainable. Is there a solution?

Healthy ice lollies, ice pops, bompies, bunny licks, or something

reusable ice lolly pouch

I recently conducted a survey on a South African Facebook group, and asked what people called those plastic packets filled with juice that you freeze. We all enjoyed eating them as children. After letting it run for a while, I tallied up the points by counting each reply as one point. If anyone reacted to that reply, I counted the engagement as a point too. Bunny licks got the majority vote.

I stopped counting after I received 74 comments and likes, and these are my results:
