It’s safe to say all over the world we use plastic for pretty much everything, from plastic chairs to plastic bags. The issue with plastic is it take so long to biodegrade, anywhere from 500 years up to 1000 years.
Inevitably a lot of this plastic finds its way into our oceans causing havoc. It is estimated around 100,000 marine creatures die every directly because of plastic waste in our oceans. This can happen because of digestion of plastic or getting tangled up in plastic objects such as can holders.
Some things are being done to fight this such as the increased use in bioplastics and countries charging for plastic bags in order to encourage people not to be wasteful and reuse old ones.
Still, it is evident there is a big problem that at this time is only likely to get worse.

If you’re a sparkling wine drinker you can expect it to last 1-3 days if kept in the fridge with a wine stopper. Light white and rose wine drinkers can expect it to last 5-7 days in the fridge with a wine stopper. Pretty good! For full bodied white and red wine drinkers you’ll have to drink up within 3-5 days. With red wine, it should be kept in a cool dark place and the cork placed back in the bottle. If your tipple is fortified wine then you can expect it to last up to 28 days because of the increased alcohol levels.
