This morning a sample pack of Natracare Intimate Wipes dropped on to my desk for review. And as much as we like the product, when we started looking into its disposal we began a journey that has led to an interesting (to say the least) and mildly worrying 'end'.

Britain's love affair with the trusty sandwich could be numbered because new on the belt at YO! Sushi this summer is the Oishii Bun, which launch on to menus nationwide at the iconic sushi restaurant. The word 'Oishii' is Japanese for 'delicious' and these light and fluffy white Asian buns are gently steamed and filled with one of four fantastic flavours - including Hoisin Duck, Miso Chicken, Teriyaki Mushroom and Yuzu Mackerel.
Occasionally something comes along that simply stuns us. Something so ingenious, or outstandingly simple, ethical, usable or just plain brilliant. For us, the Wonderbag is all of this, and more. The Wonderbag was created in South Africa for Africans. It has created 2000 jobs and 600,000 are in homes being used. It saves time money and fuel and because it works it is used. Because it is used, it works both for the environment and for our health.

Discover your personal tea taste with some of the great companies we have in the UK, who are dedicated to bringing you your perfect 'cuppa'.
