Plastic free tea bags
Synthetic tea bags have been brought up in the past as a product that can harm the environment. However, did you know that it can also harm our bodies when we consume tea? Synthetic tea bags are melting microplastics into our cups. These plastic free tea brands are great because they differ by being biodegradable and compostable. https://www.independent.co.uk/extras/indybest/food-drink/best-plastic-free-tea-bags-clipper-t2-pukka-twinings-a8982626.html

Try on clothes virtually to help you with online shopping
An app is being tested by The London College of Fashion which aims to change the way consumers shop online by allowing us to try on clothing “virtually”. The app allows you to create an avatar of yourself, where you are then able to see what you look like in those items. Usually consumers decide whether they like the items purchased online after purchasing it and trying it on. The aim of the app is to decrease the ever growing percentage of online returns by allowing us to see how we look in clothes before purchasing it online. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p07nrrmc

A gel that can help heal tooth decay
Recently in China, a team of scientists have developed a gel that can regrow tooth enamel. Tooth enamel is the hard, outer surface layer of your teeth that serves to protect against tooth decay. Usually, teeth enamel cannot grow back once it breaks or wears away due to its complicated structure covering the surface of a tooth. It is formed biologically and can therefore cannot be self-repaired, increasing the chances of cavities. However, with the new gel it is great because it is made of the same material as enamel, consisting of calcium and phosphate ions. https://www.intelligentliving.co/scientists-develop-gel-regrow-tooth-enamel/
