    We want one of these so bad(Picture: FinalStraw)

    Plastic straws are destroying our world, there’s no doubt about it.

    However, sometimes it’s necessary to use a straw if you’re disabled, for example. Often it’s simply more convenient, when you have sensitive teeth, or are wearing lipstick.

    Many of us already refuse plastic straws in bars, and have our own glass or stainless versions at home, but what happens when you’re out and about?

    However, it’s not convenient to take a long straw around with you, especially as it will get dirty in your bag.

    This is what makes this invention so exciting – FinalStraw is the world’s first collapsible, reusable straw – and it… Read the full story

    Toys that could make you a load of money picture: REX/getty/metro.co.uk

    If you grew up believing your favourite childhood toys could be worth something one day, now’s a good time to see how much they could go for.

    You may have held on to iconic toys for sentimental reasons or perhaps even out of curiosity to see if they had a lucrative future and now you can see which were worth the wait.

    From board games to robotic pets, to legos and even old Rubik’s Cubes; these toys from the 70s, 80s and 90s will fire up the nostalgia and might even have you considering parting with them after all these years.

    Here’s what’s worth some money now, according to Sunny.

    Kim Kardashian wants us to stop throwing ‘the mental health card’ at Kanye just because he’s expressing his opinions.

    That may royally tick you off for many reasons.*

    *His opinions are actively damaging to people, there’s valid criticism for his tweets among the rude comments, Kim really needs to address the oppressive bareness of her marble-decked home, and so on.

    But there’s one little bit of Kim’s request that niggles – especially because Kim’s not the only one making this slip-up: Mental health and mental illness are not interchangeable terms.

    Picture: Getty Cutting through the bullshit of ?natural? ingredients in food and cosmetics
    (Picture: Getty)

    Pret were forced this week to change their advertising, after getting in trouble for using the word ‘natural’ when referring to their food.

    The ASA ruled that since there were artificial additives in some products, they were in danger of misleading their customers.

    They’re certainly not the only culprit on the high-street. Every second product has health benefits or comes from some sort of sacred berry from deep in the Amazon.

    We’re sick of it, tbh, and want people to know more about these buzzwords being bandied about because – as it turns out – companies can often get… Read the full story

    Peanut butter is an incredible spread.

    It tastes delicious, it’s nutritious and, for 15 domestic abuse survivors, it’s giving them the chance of a better life.

    The Queenz are based in the Mukuru slum in Nairobi, and they make and sell homemade peanut butter from the factory they started together.

    They’re completely financially independent and that’s huge because extreme poverty makes women particularly vulnerable to abuses.

    Often, the poorest women have nowhere to turn if they are abused – particularly if their abuser is a husband or close relation. The Mukuru slum in Nairobi, where these women live, has some of the highest rates of violence against women and girls in Kenya.

    Just 8.7% of those who are attacked report their case to the police, with most of the women and girls in the slum being too poor to have ‘the power to protect themselves’ (to quote Millicent Fawcett).

    The Queenz met through the women survivors’ network Wangu Kanja, which helped them receive… Read the full story

    If you’ve ever wanted to experience a room just for crying, you need to enrol at the University of Utah.

    Jackie Larsen recently uploaded a photo of a closet completely dedicated to crying to her Twitter.

    The Cry Closet has just been installed in the university’s library.

    It’s a small, white closet, which comes with a tall white door and a sign on the front with a number of rules printed on it.

    Day-to-day life with IBS can be very hard (Picture: Ella Byworth for Metro.co.uk)

    As a life-long sufferer of irritable bowel syndrome (diarrhoea predominant), I know first hand just how problematic managing your work and social life around this condition can be.

    How IBS affects my mental health every day of my life

    It can be very embarrassing to talk about or explain to your colleagues and friends.

    Often they won’t be able to empathise or even understand how you feel if they have never experienced it themselves.

    It can be tough to ask for a seat on the Tube when your struggles aren’t immediately obvious.

    There’s the squint at your tummy to see if you’re pregnant, the quick judgment of your limbs, and, if you’re unlucky, an accusatory question about why you need to sit down.

    Having to explain yourself on public transport, getting into the nitty-gritty of your health, isn’t easy.

    That’s why we rejoiced at the sight of TfL’s Priority Seating Week campaign to promote their ‘please offer me a seat’ badge, which focuses on invisible illnesses.

    The reaction has been positive, for the most part. But one part of the campaign that’s raised questions is the… Read the full story

    If you want to know a little more about your body composition, there are a number of measurements you can take.

    You could step on a set of scales. You could get your fat measured.

    Or you could just take your BMI.

    BMI, or Body Mass Index, is a very crude way of working out whether your weight roughly correlates to your weight – the idea being that the taller you are, the heavier you should be.

    How to work out your BMI

    You can work out like this:

    • Divide your weight (kg) by your height (m)
    • Then divide that number by your height again

    So for me, that’d be 60/1.6 = 37.5/1/6 = 23.4

    Normal BMI ranges between 18.5 to 24.9 – anything more or less is deemed to be unhealthy. So I’m *just* in the healthy bracket.

    So, should we be using the BMI scale?

    As I say, it’s a very crude measurement – it’s literally just an equation that works out… Read the full story

    Inflammatory bowel disease is a chronic condition which affects more than 300,000 people in the UK.

    The two main types of IBD are Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, two conditions which cause inflammation and ulceration within the digestive system.

    While UC causes inflammation of the large bowel and/or rectum, Crohn’s can affect the entire digestive system mouth to anus.

    Both conditions can be life-changing and debilitating, and usually come with symptoms including fatigue, weight loss, stomach cramps, diarrhoea or constipation and rectal bleeding.

    Both conditions can be controlled with medication, however, often surgery is necessary.

    During surgery, a section, or entirety of the part of the digestive system may be removed.

    These days, the ‘voluntary’ service charge in restaurants feels a little less optional.

    Most of the time, the extra 12.5% has already been added to your bill. And that’s fine because you know, the waiting staff often deserve a tip.

    But one woman was left outraged after finding that she’d been charged £1.50 for having parmesan cheese grated over her meal.

    Rosie French, a food writer, recently visited Ombra, a Venetian-style canal-side bar and restaurant in Hackney.

    She chose to have parmesan grated over her tagliatelle dish…but didn’t expect to be charged extra for the privilege.

    Sharing a photo of the offending bill, complete with the ‘Parmisan Supplement (sic)’, she wrote: ‘Wasn’t mentioned to us during the awkward,… Read the full story

    If you have an ASOS addiction, you might have noticed that some of the items you’re frequently adding to your wish list actually have human names – such as Lucy shoes and the Stephanie dress.

    Take a scroll through ASOS’s site. You’ll quickly find a bunch of baby name inspiration while you’re looking at tops and jumpers.

    But if you thought these names had just occurred out of ASOS’ lack of name inspiration, you were wrong – because there’s actually a pretty cute meaning behind the named clothing.

    Choosing a quiet time to hit the weights room can be as stressful as trying to lift the weights themselves.

    Turn up at peak time and you could find yourself having to spend 45 minutes on the rower or tricep pullies rather than having a bench or a treadmill – and no one wants that.

    So what are the key times to avoid, if you want to have an effective workout?

    According to wellness technology platform MindBody, the most popular hour to hit the gym is 6-6.59pm.

    DREADLOCK DOG - Pooch with one eye that was "one big mat" when it arrived at shelter undergoes incredible transformation

    A dreadlocked dog that was ‘one big mat’ when he was rescued from the streets has undergone a stunning transformation – and is now looking for a home.

    Shih-tzu mix Rumor was found in a trucking yard which has become known as the ‘Corridor of Cruelty’ because so many pets are dumped there.

    The dog, aged eight or nine, was taken in by Corridor Rescue ‘in bad shape’ health-wise and covered in matted fur that swamped his tiny frame.
