Don’t forget to set your clocks forward this weekend. Good ole’ British Summer time is finally upon us and all of us here at Melo Labs UK are looking forward to longer days and the prospect of warmer temperatures.
Some people would like to see British Summer Time come to an end. It’s garnered the support of a few MP’s in Parliament who have been lobbied by organisations such as the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents and several environmental groups. Their argument is that British Summer Time causes accidents and increases our dependency on fossil fuels to heat and light our homes. They are advocating that British Summer Time should be carried over into the winter months, giving us a “double summertime” in the warmer months and adopting the same time zone as continental European countries like France, Germany and Spain during the winter. Reversing BST seems like a strange idea but the concept of winding our clocks forward or backwards has only been around for about 100 years. Think about it, if you cut 2 inches off the top of a blanket and sew it to the bottom, do you have a longer blanket?
Much like reversing BST, some people can’t quite fathom the idea of not using water or toothpaste to brush their teeth. When using Melo Labs IKO, our finger toothbrush, you don’t need either. After all, the toothbrush as we know it has only been around since 1938 with much earlier versions being made from hog’s hair in the 18th and 19th centuries. Way before that, our ancient ancestors used chew sticks and leaves which were rubbed against their teeth to keep them clean or they chewed mouthfuls of leaves and herbs. We’re not advocating using leaves but, going back to a gentler more environmentally friendly form of dental hygiene can’t be a bad thing and really, not that hard to comprehend.
So, let’s spring forward and reprogram our minds by using Melo Labs IKO fingertip toothbrush. Enjoy the summer!!
