That’s interesting 03.07.19

From mini-breaks on the Moon to Sir David Attenborough‘s surprise show at Glastonbury, here are some things that made us say “That’s Interesting” in the studio this week.

A period of luxury

In a bid to tackle the Tampon tax that’s recently been at the forefront of feminist news, The Female Company has released an ingenious way to sell their feminine hygiene products – in a book. Books tax at only 7% – whereas sanitary products are taxed as high as 19% in certain European countries due to it being considered a “luxury” rather than an essential item. The book not only helps women save money, but it’s also a beautifully designed collection of stories and insights all about menstruation and the female experience.

Intergalactic getaways

Hotels have come a long way in the last 100 years since Hilton Hotels first opened their doors. In celebration of this, they have worked alongside ‘Futurists’ to imagine how their hotels may be in another 100 years. Their ideas involve mini-breaks to the moon, hotel structuring that adapts to individuals wants and needs, vertical hydroponic crop farms, 3D printed food and individual Hilton Hosts for each guest.

Drink happy

As we all become more health & wellness focused, some of us are considering ditching the drink. However, for those less inclined towards a life of sobriety, there’s another option. Packed with botanic herbs that have health assisting benefits far beyond flavour, Floreat is a wine designed to help cure headaches – not cause them. Containing medical herbs such as Horsetail and Milk Thistle, this is not your run of the mill after-work bevy.

Green Glastonbury

Considered King of the War on Climate Change, Sir David Attenborough was welcomed onto the stage at Glastonbury with as much enthusiasm as any musical act. He thanked the audience for going plastic bottle-free during the festival and reminded them of our constant environmental impact on our world. This year was one the cleanest Glastonbury Festivals on record, with 98% of tents being taken home and a vast reduction of waste left behind.
