Heading to Ireland with Typsy Part 1

Posted by Emily Marr on Sep 28, 2018 10:15:00 AM
Earlier this year we gave our Typsy Tribe members the chance to win a trip to Ireland as part of our Pour the Perfect Pint competition.  After watching our Tribe pour the perfect pint of Guinness and create some Guinness inspired limmericks, we then had the tough decision of choosing a winner. 
 
After much deliberation, we came to a decision and sent two lucky winners - Aman and Jaspreet - to Dublin where they enjoyed five nights of fun including a behind the scenes tour of the Guinness Storehouse, dinner at a Michelin star restaurant and more.
 
Catch up on Aman's trip in his diary entries and find out if any of the Irish luck rubbed off on him.

Popping open a bottle of champagne is wonderful and decadent. The pop and hiss of the champagne bubbling away are often associated with celebrations, events or special treats. Yet, this sumptuous and often expensive tipple comes with a danger often overlooked: the cork.

Twist the bottle, not the cork is what is often invoked from the first time you hold a bottle of champagne. But we’ve done some digging to find some other quirky, and somewhat risqué, ways to open a bottle of champagne.

The war on straws – why you should say no to plastic

Posted by Emily Marr on Sep 7, 2018 12:30:00 PM

It’s a no-brainer that plastic is bad for the environment. Just turn to your local beach and there’s a good chance you’ll find at least one piece of plastic washed up on the sand. With calls to action increasing, supermarkets around the world have taken up a stand and gone single-use plastic bag free.

But things aren’t stopping there. Environmental activists are now turning to plastic straws with many groups stating that in some countries, like Australia, about 10 million plastic straws are used every day. The call to action has been heard across the world and now businesses, airlines, hotels and more are taking the pledge to go plastic straw free.

So, what is the plastic straw war all about and what should you do about it?
