Everyone knows the horror of opening the freezer to find that your pint of ice cream has been eaten by a snack thief. Ben & Jerry’s created a solution to this problem by releasing the “Euphori-lock,” a ring-shaped combination lock that seals the lid to any pint-sized ice cream carton. The locks are available on the Ben & Jerry’s website and are designed to counteract the common theme of roommates stealing snacks.Bustle 2/19/19
To mark the opening of the newest Ikea store in London, the Swedish retailer deployed two large-scale replicas of its new tub toy, the Smakryp boat, into the River Thanes of London. The life-sized, remote-controlled boats go by the name “The Good Ship Ikea,” are ten feet long and can collect nearly 45 pounds of garbage at once. To encourage the community to lend an active helping hand, Ikea teamed up with the local Creekside Education Trust, allowing local families to learn more about plastic waste and control the boats remotely to help clear the river.Fast Company 2/19/19
In the wake of the Fyre Festival documentaries on both Hulu and Netflix, questions arose about the costs of production to make the festival look as appealing as it did. Shutterstock took that idea and ran with it, creating its own replica promotional video for the festival, using only stock photography, video and music from its extensive stock library. The result? A shockingly similar video that took only 18 clips and one day to make. Shutterstock even went so far as to break down a projected cost analysis of producing the same video from scratch.Adweek 1/31/19

According to Better Homes & Gardens, doing laundry is the 5th most hated household chore behind washing dishes and cleaning the toilet. And since laundry can be time consuming, Tide announced its decision to roll out brick-and-mortar cleaners within the next two years. Tide Cleaners will be a full-service, on-demand laundry solution (including dry cleaning) and will offer drop-off locations, drop-boxes in apartment building and retail stores, and even van delivery to college campuses. The brand hopes to help consumers “take a load off,” and help people’s lives revolve less around their laundry.Adweek 2/19/19
